What if humanity could take a giant step forward towards a climate transformation?

Introducing a Bold New Monetary Policy and Economic Paradigm that Together can Create a Living Systems Economy Worldwide

  • Imagine a global monetary policy, backed by the world’s central banks, that rewards all players from corporations to municipalities to individuals for certified actions that effectively remove carbon from the atmosphere, increase biodiversity, and reduce environmental harms. The Global Carbon Reward is a big and potent carrot to draw the world toward a livable future.

    Welcome a visitor from Kim Stanley Robinson’s novel, The Ministry for the Future, Dr. Delton Chen, who is the creator of the Global Carbon Reward, and Renegade Economist Della Duncan who invites you to “unlearn everything you thought you knew about economics”

    Dr. Delton Chen, founder of the Global Carbon Reward (GCR), is a visiting geo-hydrologist from Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Chen’s GCR policy inspired Robinson’s game-changing “Carbon Coin” in the novel and is a bold new policy idea to inspire and incentivize effective action in support of a healthy biosphere. Meet Dr. Chen himself on November 2 to learn more, ask questions, and discover a way to fund the future by increasing environmental wealth rather than extracting it. To learn more in advance, check out this 40-minute introduction by Dr. Chen on YouTube: Introduction to Global Carbon Reward (2020)

    Della Duncan, Renegade Economist, Co-Founder of the California Doughnut Economics Coalition (CalDEC) and a Public Banking Advocate from San Francisco (and a recent transplant to Boulder Creek) addresses additional theories of economic change designed for justice and climate solutions. Della invites you to “unlearn everything you thought you knew about economics” with her Podcast Upstream: Radical ideas and inspiring stories for a just transition. She will address ideas around De-growth and the questioning of “Green Capitalism” as applied to the Global Carbon Reward.  Experience Della in this excellent audio documentary produced by her team at The Upstream Podcast: “The Green Transition: The Problems with Green Capitalism, Part 1
