For our upcoming Green Drinks, we have a very special guest speaker in Mark Boyle. Mark is the author of ‘Moneyless Man: A Year of Freeconomic Living’, and will be speaking about living without money, gift economics, ecological living. He will also be talking about his latest, and free(!), book ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’. The talk takes place at 8pm at the Cottage Bar, Lower Salthill on Thursday, 9th January. All are welcome to attend.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Mark Boyle has lived completely without money in England for two and a half years, an experience which formed the basis for his first book, ‘The Moneyless Man’. He is also the founder of ‘Freeconomy’, an alternative economy with local groups across 171 countries.
He holds a degree in Business and for most of his professional career was involved in the management of organic food companies.
He gives talks internationally (but doesn’t fly which makes it difficult for him to go very far very often!) and writes intermittently for various international newspapers and magazines, such as ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Permaculture Magazine’.
He is currently in the process of creating a fully localised, land-based gift economy in Éire which will demonstrate how all the ideas and practical solutions described in ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’ can be integrated into one holistic system design.
“The revolution before us is only worth joining if it goes to the depths that Mark has explored . . . it is my hope that this book will deepen its readers’ belief in the possibility of such a world”.
– Charles Eisenstein, author of ‘Sacred Economics’ (from the foreword of ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’)
