Binnenlands Bestuur: Active civil society possible through local currency

December 9, 2015


Binnenlands Bestuur, the Dutch policy platform, published the article titled:  “Active civil society fosters own currency system – LOCAL CURRENCY ADVANCES” written by Jos Moerkamp. The article re-emphasizes what the added value of local currencies can be for an active civil society. The article also involves Edgar Kampers from Qoin, who highlights among other things, the contribution of local currency on achieving policy goals set by Municipalities. The zuiderling and DAM in Rotterdam, the noppes and makkie in Amsterdam, the crownie in Den Haag, and SamenDoen in Tholen and Bergen op Zoom are some examples of already existing initiatives in the Netherlands trying to enable an active civil society.
