More about this event

Despite pledges and international agreements, global carbon emissions are still on the rise. In order to come anywhere near reaching the 1.5 goal of the Paris Climate Agreement, rethinking of economic systems and large scale climate solutions are needed. Digitisation is opening up new possibilities – for the environment, the economic system and for purchasing. “Commonomics”, for example, is an economic model based around sustainability and grassroots initiatives, and the 2020 blockbuster novel “The Ministry for the Future” explored the idea of a carbon coin to reduce emissions.  At this one-of-a-kind event, we will explore the intersection of blockchain, currency, and carbon and explore the feasibility of a genuine greening of economics and trade.

We will bring together experts from economics, digital currency and academia to address questions including:

  • Can economic activity be linked to carbon mitigation outcomes?
  • Can blockchain and digital currencies ever be sustainable or even carbon-positive?
  • How can we manage our common resources in a sustainable and equitable way?
  • …and much more!

Join us for an open discussion on whether a new sustainable economy can become a reality in Switzerland and beyond.
