End of June there was a meeting of interested folks with the initiators of a regional currency in Dresden called the Elbtaler. They met in the new Lose store, which only sells produce without plastic packaging. Here they discussed the benefits and limitations of the Elbtaler.
Which way to the future? This was the question asked by the 4th Informed Cities Forum that was held in Rotterdam from 26th-27th of March. 164 participants from 22 European countries went on an exposure therapy between civil servants, scientists and active citizens.
Since January 1st of 2015 there is a new Makerspace in Dresden West. Various local initiatives, artists and creatives put a new, shared vision into practise: The Rosenwerk. The opening is scheduled for the second weekend of May.
