Courses on Monies

Here are few learning opportunities online on complementary currencies & alike:

Money & Society MOOC is held by Jem Bendell and Michael Slater from Institute of Leadership and Sustainability in Cumbria, UK. The 4-week stretch situates the money to the society as we know it. Course is suitable also for beginners on the field of complementary currencies. Lots of video content.

MOOC is free running couple times a year. Kristiina and Jenni from Valuecraft took the course in 2018 and find it insightful.  Editor’s note: reserve enough time to the course weekly as these blokes are particular with the timing of the exercises.

Acumen online courses have many valid choices for social entrepreneurs and a like. Kristiina and Jenni took a Systems Practice Course last year. Lessons consist of reading and group work. Worth the time. Best learning outcomes are reached when engaging the tasks with a small team with different background. The Systems Practice Course entails a deal of  collaborative working and therefore it is a good idea to reserve some working time with the extended team well in advance.
