Let’s Make Money

The first “Let’s Make Money’ webinars took place in 2010 with 20 participants from 4 continents.

What Participants Thought

“This course is an invaluable introduction to community currency design. It will save you years of research and help you avoid many common pitfalls in currency development. It’s a must for any group thinking of starting their own currency and useful as a comprehensive guide to best practices even for those well along in the development process.”

Mira Luna, Director, Bay Area Community Exchange and BACE Timebank

“Thanks, great course, excellent information not available anywhere else in the world. It’s all the material I was looking for but could never find elsewhere on the Net. It lays out a very good plan of attack for anyone starting up, so I’ll be using it privately here in Portland to help move ahead with our new currency.”

Mark Herpel, Editor, Community Currency Magazine

“It was a great experience, great material and methodology. The webinar also gave me the opportunity to establish new contacts, it is amazing how many applications there are for complementary currencies!!! And because it is planned for an international audience, you can have a bigger picture of what is happening where, you can have an idea of the different contexts in which they work. Just great!”

Tatiana Maya Valois, Brisbane LETS, Australia

“A comprehensive, yet practical, introduction to complementary currencies, incorporating systems theory thinking and lessons learned from many experiments around the world and in history.”

Paul Eagle, Belfast, Maine, USA

“The ideas that helped me the most from your course were how to see a community currency as a system for matching underused assets to needs, how to set proper boundaries and the difference between governance and management issues.”

Otmar Donnenberg, Coordinator, Dreyecker, Baden Württemberg

“You have sifted an enormous amount of material, identified the key design variables and found a way of presenting these systematically so as to make them clear and accessible to others. You were clearly driven by the desire to empower and facilitate – you were continually checking in to see how we as students were doing.”

Jonathan Dawson, Findhorn Ecovillage community currency, the Eko.

“The Let’s Make Money webinar gave me a lot to think about and a lot of good information about starting a regional currency in my area. Thank You!”

Scott Tunmer, Brookfield Connecticut, USA
