We're inviting you to a presentation and discussion on Creative Commons and the future of money, taking place during the 3rd to 7th of May in five different cities across the Nordic countries. Our two speakers are Gabriel Shalom and Jay Cousins (read more below), who will also be joined in each country by local participants and speakers.

Some questions that will be asked during the evening is: What are young adults thinking about money and value? How can we create new systems of wealth generation and abundance? What does the future hold for banks and other financial institutions in the wake of massive peer to peer exchange?

“The Future of Money” begins a conversation on these topics and invites your participation.
