On Wednesday, November 23, IACA held a webinar in cooperation with Guillaume Lepecq and CashEssentials which was open to all of the industry called: The Role of Cash in the Future Monetary Landscape.
Participants learned of a new way to consider the future and the future of cash using the Futures Literacy Lab methodology.
Futures Literacy Laboratories are an advanced, field-tested methodology for exploring key questions and gaining new insights into the nature and impact of imagined futures.
During this IACA webinar, the panel discussed how futures literacy provides a tool to improve our perception of possible, plausible and desirable futures for cash. Key take-aways were shared and discussed.
It was such a fascinating discussion!! The webinar can be viewed now on our website under the Resources/videos Menu on our website.
The panel participants were as follows:
- Martin Calnan, UNESCO Chair for Futures Literacy
- Antti Heinonen, President of the Banknote Ethics Initiative; former Director of Banknotes at the ECB
- Guillaume Lepecq, Chair of CashEssentials
- Richard Wall, Chair of IACA; former Head of Currency at the Bank of Canada
