Discover local currencies – money game!

January 9th 2020, 18:30 – 21:30, Cave du Rocher, La Chaux-de-Fonds

The evening of January 9th was absolutely perfect to start the year with new local currencies in our wallet! After discovering the history of money on Earth and the different existing local currencies with Mathieu, the city of La Chaux-de-Fonds presented its alternative: The bee!  Accepted in more than 90 shops and promoting local commerce, it is doing very well. Its cousin, the picaillon presented by the SEL, delighted the participants. 1 hour of time corresponds to 25 spicaillons to be exchanged with a network of more than 300 people! The evening ended with the game of money which allowed us to experiment three very different monetary systems!
