Aims of Sunflower


The Sunflower Foundation engages us to question our understanding of money and to consider alternatives. Lively exchanges of ideas appear on all its platforms.

MoneyForum brings business and academic leaders together to exchange views on money-related themes.

SunflowerTalks focus on core issues, for example, in the money:critical series.

Many disciplines and points of view are represented in Not Business as Usual, from Conzett Publishing. The Sunflower Foundation operates the MoneyMuseum in Zurich. Special exhibitions explore wide-ranging money-related topics, from the lives of workingwomen in Zürich in 1900 to the story of how China in the 9th century changed its currency from cowrie-shells to copper coins (worthless items in themselves), from Bitcoin to Traditional Money.

The Sunflower Foundation offers a wealth of educational material on Apple’s iTunes U platform. Our popular Quiz App on iTunes is a playful approach to the topic of money and its history. The Sunflower Foundation supports academic research on relevant themes.
