Positive Money Europe’s success is underpinned by the backing of over 3,000 dedicated supporters who share our vision of a fair, democratic and sustainable eurozone. We asked them for their opinions on our work and for more information about themselves.
Positive Money Europe is a people-powered movement. We want to make their voices heard in discussions about how our financial system works, to ensure that institutions like the European Central Bank work for the interest of the many.
To make sure our priorities are aligned with those of our supporters, in September we asked for their opinions on the topics which Positive Money Europe works on, how they could get involved and for some information about themselves.
Supporters gave their opinions on what we should prioritise over the next 12 months and shared new ideas. They also told us more about who they are, giving us direction for our work and many useful tips on how to improve our campaigns and communication.
Over 276 supporters got in touch, and we are delighted to share their feedback. Thank you to everyone who contributed, your continued support and engagement is the foundation of Positive Money Europe’s work.
Which campaigns should Positive Money Europe prioritise in 2020-21?
Knowing what issues most concern our supporters helps us to prioritise our areas of work. Our supporters told us that helicopter money and the climate crisis are the topics they would prioritise most heading into 20201. Helicopter money was also a high priority from last year’s survey.

Compared to 2019, our results showed a small improvement in terms of gender balance across the network, with a shift of 4 percentage points from 82/17 to 75/21.
We can still do more to diversify our movement though, to make sure it truly reflects everybody living within the eurozone.
