Following the webinar we held with Ruth Stokes who wrote the book “The Armchair Activist's Handbook," we felt this was so successful that we are seeing how we can run monthly webinars on activism and how people can connect with causes to make a difference. Ruth will be helping us with this.
To start this off we have planned three webinars on local, regional and national activism that we are doing in co-operation with the National Community Activist Network.
This is the third webinar and will concentrate on activism at a national level and will be presented by Fran Boat of Positive Money which is a movement to democratise money and banking so that it works for society and not against it. Fran will tell us how we can get involved nationally so that we can make this happen.
Fran Boait joined Positive Money in October 2012 as the Campaigns and Operations Manager. She comes from a science background, and studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, spending a lot of her free time involved with environmental campaigning. After a short time in Tanzania where she volunteered at an orphanage, she returned to Cambridge to undertake a PhD Earth Sciences, her topic was Carbon Capture and Storage. She has also completed internships at the UN in New York and Greenpeace in London. She became interested in economics and money creation after realising that the environmental and global poverty crises we face could not easily be fixed without re-thinking how the current economic system works, and how to redesign it.
