We are looking for enthusiastic, environmentally-minded students to become Ambassadors for the campaign over the academic year 2012-13. We would love to meet anyone who is interested at our training session.

Come along to a FREE screening of new documentary “97% Owned” followed by a presentation by Peter Verity of Positive Money and Q&A session.
97% Owned is a new documentary that reveals how money is at the root of our current social and economic crisis. Featuring frank interviews and commentary from economists, campaigners and former bankers, it exposes the privatised, debt-based monetary system that gives banks the power to create money, shape the economy, cause crises and push house prices out of reach. Fact-based and clearly explained, in just 60 minutes it shows how the power to create money is the piece of the puzzle that economists were missing when they failed to predict the crisis.
Produced by Queuepolitely and featuring Ben Dyson of Positive Money, Josh Ryan-Collins of The New Economics Foundation, Ann Pettifor, the “HBOS Whistleblower” Paul Moore, Simon Dixon of Bank to the Future and Nick Dearden from the Jubliee Debt Campaign, this is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective, and can be watched online now.Venue: LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, in the CO-OP LECTURE THEATRE, Brayford Pool, Lincoln, LN6 7TS
