“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”.

“Since the outbreak of the Eurozone crisis, the European Central Bank has become the most powerful EU economic institution, for better or worse. Democratic control on the money creation process of the ECB should be reinforced to ensure it is used to support society’s needs.”

She holds a Masters degree from the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin and the Central European University in Budapest. Uuriintuya oversees all the research projects at Positive Money Europe.
“Monetary policy is not set in stone, it evolves with time, which has been amply demonstrated, especially since the onset of the global financial crisis up to today. Our team and allies are not afraid to challenge the outdated paradigms and offer new ones that make monetary policy work for all.”
Senior Digital Campaigner
Carlotta joined Positive Money Europe in December 2022 as Senior Digital Campaigner. Before joining us, Carlotta worked as digital communication strategist for Greenpeace Italy, where she designed social media and digital engagement strategies at national and European levels for 8 years.

Before joining Positive Money Europe, she gained experience in the non-profit sector volunteering for the Italian environmental organisation Legambiente, and managing a European Solidarity Corps project.
“I believe that there is an urgent need to reform the economy, which clearly doesn’t work for people nor 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 the people.”
Jordi Schröder Bosch
Jordi joined the Positive Money Europe team in March 2022 as a Research and Policy Intern. Jordi holds a BSc in Economics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a MA in International Economics from the Berlin School of Economics and Law and the Université Sorbonne Paris-Nord.
