Making money positive

Positive Money

I am coordinating a Positive Money Powys/mid-Powys meet up group. For those unfamiliar with Positive Money, it is a campaign dedicated to ending the debt-based money system, the cause of (or perhaps better described as the 'enabling factor' for) much poverty, socioeconomic injustice and environmental destruction. For more information visit:

Positive Money meet-up groups take place around the UK for members of Positive Money to discuss local strategies, particularly along the lines of outreach and education of what the campaign is and why monetary reform matters for building a sustainable future. Meet-ups can also be organised as opportunities for the general public to learn more, ask questions, etc.

Networks in the Presteigne area could support a first meeting to get the ball rolling. Any feedback welcome. I look forward to meeting and organising with those interested.
