“To change the world we need to start by changing our money system. We have to raise awareness among people about the current broken system, and the existing and well-researched proposals that are out there to fix it! It’s not all doom and gloom: we can change the system so that it benefits all while respecting the limits of our planet.”

“I believe that there is an urgent need to reform the economy, which clearly doesn’t work for people or for the planet. When I found out about Positive Money Europe, I was attracted by the organisation’s approach: not only to identify the problems, but also to develop alternative and brave proposals to overcome them.”

“Money shapes relationships and creates power dynamics. The way the system currently works exacerbates inequalities and harms our planet. But the rules of the game are not dictated by some divine law — we ourselves can deconstruct and rebuild them in a way that works for all.”
