Positive Money Europe is a non-profit research and campaigning organisation that demands a reform of the money system so that it supports a fair, democratic and sustainable economy. To do this, we scrutinise the work of the most important monetary institution in the Eurozone, the European Central Bank. We are the bridge between this powerful institution and ordinary citizens, translating its policies into plain English, and we make proposals that ensure the money system works for everyone, and respect the limits of our planet.
Positive Money Europe was founded in 2018 and grew out of Positive Money UK – a non-profit organisation founded in 2010 that targets the Bank of England. The European organisation was launched following a successful campaign targeting the European Central Bank – ‘Quantitative Easing for the People’.
Today we are a team of nine people that work across the Eurozone from our office in Brussels. We also work in close collaboration with our colleagues in the UK and the US as part of the global Positive Money group.
Positive Money Europe is an associate member of Finance Watch and a member of the Eurozone Watchdog Network coordinated by Transparency International EU, which seeks to make the governance of the Eurozone more transparent and democratic.
