Recent bank failures are proof of how fragile today’s finance and money system is, and how governments still follow the all too common practice of using our taxpayers’ money to bail banks out. Positive Money Europe’s mission is to redesign this system so that it serves people, communities and the planet. Having a euro with the same properties as cash, but in digital form, is a means by which we can achieve this change!
Join us at our next event on this topic, on Monday 19 June, from 6 to 8.30pm CEST, at Press Club Brussels (Brussels). And afterwards you are welcome to stay for drinks and snacks!BOOK YOUR SLOT TODAY!
We will feature an exclusive preview of the second part of a powerful animated map (you can see the first part here!), created by researcher and artist Carlijn Kingma, investigative journalist Thomas Bollen and Professor Martijn Jeroen van der Linden, which depicts the workings and malfunctions of our financial system.
We will continue with a rich discussion of the flaws of this system, and how the digital euro can help solve them, together with our excellent speakers:
- Henrike Hahn, Member of the European Parliament (Greens/EFA)
- Anna Martin, Financial Services Officer, BEUC
- Martijn Jeroen van der Linden, Professor of New Finance at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and co-creator of the map animation
Kathryn Carlson, Financial Services Correspondent at MLex, will moderate the discussion.
Who should benefit from the digital euro, and what features should it have? Let’s start a conversation and work towards a better future for our money system!BOOK YOUR SLOT TODAY!
