BY GEN DE SPA
@ VOL 30 ON MAR 15, 2017

Gen de Spa talks about living economies as an educational network promoting systems of exchange that foster community wellbeing. She shares the importance of strengthening and helping sustain regional economies by promoting interest-free means of exchange - currencies based on and respecting the living systems of our planet - to complement money in local communities.

The Necessary Art of Not Leaving Economics to Economists

BY GEN DE SPA
@ VOL 38 ON NOV 08, 2018

After spending enormous energy raising awareness about the Trans-Pacific Partnership for several years only to have the hoped-for change-of-government support the toxic deal, Gen de Spa is taking the Bucky Fuller quote to heart - 'Build the alternative system that makes the old system obsolete'.

She is currently initiating a remnant native forest restoration and biodiversity education project at her home in Staveley, completing a Masters in Wellbeing Economics and teaching and actioning Wellbeing Economics in Christchurch and Mid-Canterbury.
