Who is behind the European Citizens Bank?
The platform was launched by Positive Money Europe, in collaboration with Particitiz. It is co-funded by the European Commission’s Europe for Citizens (2014-2020) programme and the Open Societies Foundation.
Positive Money Europe is a Brussels based, not-for-profit, research and campaigning organisation that aims to make the money system support a fair, democratic and sustainable economy. Particitiz is a Belgian organisation specialised in citizen participation tools.
The initiative is supported by a series of local partners in five different eurozone countries who help to carry out the initiative at a national level:
- Institut Veblen
- Rethinking Economics NL
- Our New Economy
- Sustainable Finance Lab
- European Credit Initiative
- Fondazione Finanza Etica
