Visions & concrete examples for a just and sustainable economy Dan-Eric, Medlemsbanken JAK - a cooperative interest free bank. 4 We will try to inform about examples of sustainable economy and some of the wide range of sub-topics it touches. Alternative currencies, could this be a solution, what is money anyway? Improved democracy in organizations and nations, something JAK intend to implement. What is the problem about interest? And how to we organize an economy in a post-GDP growth society?
Gotta Catch 'Em All! avtobiff, Serengeti 5 No one is free until everyone is free!

This track aims to gain access to groups not really targeted by existing and conventional free software groups. The goal is to inspire people early on to demand freedom, tinker, and self-organize learning.

Everyone is welcome but especially targeted are kids, parents, educational areas, and related movements and organisations.
