Dear <<First Name>>,
this time we got news about a board game to learn about the money system, new IMMR projects and fundraising ideas and updates regarding the upcoming international conference from our German member organization:

Money Maker: The game to teach the world about banking

Our Dutch member organisation Ons Geld has developed a brilliant board game called Money Maker, to teach the workings of the money system to people in a fun and easy way. In the game each player is a bank who can create endless credit money to bid on goods and houses until a bank run crashes the system. The game can also be sold in other countries and even be translated to other languages if there is high demand. Check out a fresh blog article with more info on the game, the ideas behind it and how to sell it in your country.

IMMR fundraising projects

The IMMR team has some exciting news! To strengthen the global push for a new money system, we are developing two specific, member-driven projects that will speak the message of money reform in different languages and to different audiences to help us expand our movement.

Activists from the UK, Denmark, Finland, and elsewhere will develop a project to create educational assets to raise awareness within the general public about our money system. We will  work to create videos, infographics, and social media campaigns that are open source and able to be translated to match various country contexts, and work with member organisations to implement this in different countries.

With activists from Spain, Finland and the Netherlands we will explore the development of a research project focused on preparing ourselves for the next financial crisis. This would involve research on alternative money system proposals to initiate immediately when the next crisis happens (and how this would work in various countries), and the advocacy and campaigning messaging to sensitize this within civil society in our countries. The second part of this project would be a participatory campaign to support the public in reimagining what a new money system should look like.

Over the next months we will be developing project proposals and fundraising to support their implementation. Please consider donating to support our efforts, or reach out to Brandi at brandi@moneyreform.international if you are interested in joining one of these projects. We are specifically seeking financial support and technical expertise, particularly from those based in countries outside of the EU.
