New Education for a New Economy Conference

IMG_1560a

The dclass conference offered their tickets for purchase with either Euros or a special currency of “Karma”. All but 20 of the tickets were bought with Karma, which could take many forms – from bringing food to their coffee break or doing other tasks, to helping someone not connected to the conference at all, as a form of “paying forward”.

The first day at Heimathafen Neuk├Âlln had a very interesting selection of keynote speakouts about education outside of the tradition school system and ventures that depart from the standard economical model.

It was a pleasure to talk about the Currency Lab board game for the crowd in the “Life 3.0” panel during their second day of activities. I brought some paper copies of the game that were quickly snatched up, and I’m looking forward to the new players’ feedback!
