What does a sustainable marketplace look like to you?

For the entry fee, we are accepting Ithaca Hours at twice their standard equivalence (typically $10 = 1 Hour), so bring your Hours!
The entry fee (to cover food & space) is:
$5 or a quarter Hour for SEEN members
$10 or a half Hour for non-members
Paul Strebel presents Ithaca Hours

Come learn about how new technologies are reviving traditional localized economies. Learn how you can leverage these systems for personal growth or to bolster your business.
The panel will be followed by a Community Market that draws from all four innovations and welcomes your own creative input. Let’s co-create a marketplace that builds community, enriches our lives, and strengthens the local economy.
Bring the following:
Your questions on the above topics
Your ideas about sustainable markets
Your items to trade
Your list of haves and wants
Your Ithaca Hours
We look forward to seeing you there!
