Event Details

We cordially invite you to an evening with the global thought pioneer and Finance Innovation Lab Champion - James Quilligan.This event is part of a week-long series of talks and workshops which James is hosting in conjunction with the Commons Initiative.  

James will explore and share his latest thinking and developments with global politicians and business leaders. We will explore a narrative for ‘How could a Commons Approach Shape the Future of Finance?’ We will also delve into what this means for our own collective work and how an aligned approach may catalyse significant impact for our thriving future.


We intend for this to be an evening rich in informal conversation. A serious reflection on the state of our global commons, and an exploration of meaningful solutions we could put in place together. 


So please do join us for what will be a very special and memorable evening!

More on the Commons

A commons basis for the international monetary system and a world society is able to:
- Preserve the bulk of depletable commons for future generations
- Rent a portion of depletable commons for the production and consumption of present generations
- Generate dividends for the benefit of all people and species and for the repair and restoration of depleted commons
- Enhance and generate replenishable commons
