Autogestió: Adventures Into the New Economies of Catalonia

5.0 ·
1

Catalonia is at the forefront of new economic thinking. They are a region rich in social currencies and in projects and people creating functioning post-capitalist societies. In June 2015, while in the midst of arranging the launch of the Exeter Pound, a local currency for Exeter, Adam and Hannah raised the money to travel to Catalonia and interview some on-the-ground members of these post-capitalist networks to get a glimpse of how and why they are forming.

The film is a selection of interviews and is divided into five topics of discussion:

1) The Cooperativa Integral Catalana - a cooperative which replaces existing capitalist functions;

2) Social currencies - local alternatives to national currencies;

3) Cryptocurrencies - global alternatives to national currencies;

4) Civil Disobedience - bending or breaking rules for the benefit of people; and

5) the notion of a Devon Integral Cooperative - that something like the CIC could happen in the UK.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
