Your Money AND Your Life | Mar Michelle Häusler
Mar Häusler’s talk offers deep insights into the field of social entrepreneurship, especially in the area of our personal relationship with money. A former London financial trader, Ms. Häusler left the finance world on a quest to explore deeper, more humanitarian forms of economics and money. After completing her Master’s in Economics at Schumacher College in the UK, she relates how she journeyed to the jungles of Brazil, where she worked with local communities to develop INKIRI$, a currency that changed the way locals collaborate. This has evolved into her latest project – the Give & Take Lab – a gamified experience for students that uses Social Currency to empower individuals to tackle world sustainability issues. Her talk inspires us to envision how we can also become a “social consciousness transformer”.
