A workshop at Living the New Economy
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20 10 am -12:00 pm
Performance Works Theatre on Granville Island, Vancouver
With Suresh Fernando and Michelle Colussi (Canadian Centre for Community Renewal), Ross Gentleman (CCEC Credit Union) and Kevin Harding (BC Cooperatives Association)
How will we finance building a new economy focused on social and environmental justice? What are the key features of the new economy and the finance tools that are needed to support it?
This session will share examples of community based finance models and engage participants in a discussion of how we might scale up their use in the Lower Mainland, and across the province. Examples will include co-operatives, co-op and community investment funds, community bonds, micro credit, crowdfunding and impact investing.
