The 5th Complementary Currencies conference in Spain was for the first time organized with a virtual component:
people could follow the presentations from home, and chat in real time with other virtual attendees.
It was all organized very quickly (because of difficulties getting in touch with the local organizers) but our very dynamic students team comprising of Pepa & Jose with another 4 'virtual conference organizers' + Stella coordinating made some minor miracles happen!
It was quite difficult, but we managed to get THE top speakers - who can present in spanish - in the Currencies world, Bernard Lietaer & Heloisa Primavera, and to offer a very rich & varied program which is now all recorded for posterity..
