Keeping it Circular: The Opportunity of Locally-Focussed Money

James Berry, Simon Cooper, Dave Hunter, Jules Peck, Ed Rowberry and Sue Turner

Description Details

Something special is happening in Bristol’s financial system. The Bristol Pound has been in place for 5 years, Bristol and Bath Regional Capital has funded sports fields, a counselling centre and houses renovated by ex-offenders, and Bristol Credit Union has more than 10,000 members. Now there’s a plan to launch a local bank for the region. What are the benefits of this locally-focussed financial ecology and what makes Bristol a centre for it all? Can we look forward to a future where we all come together to invest in the region in which we live? Join James Berry, Dave Hunter, Jules Peck, Ed Rowberry and Sue Turner for a discussion on the power of local money in creating a truly circular economy. Chaired by Simon Cooper.

We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.
