SamenDoen is an international partnership dedicated to experimenting the use of a community currency as a means of co-creation of public services between local government, social and non-profit organisations, and businesses. The project seeks to promote civic participation and employment in the Municipalities of Tholen and Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands.
Following an initial testing phase, supported by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity – PROGRESS (2007-2013), the project will be completely self-supporting and even generate new resources for social goals.
This project is supported by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity – PROGRESS (2007-2013). This programme is implemented by the European Commission. It was established to financially support the implementation of the objectives of the European Union in the employment, social affairs and equal opportunities area, and thereby contribute to the achievement of the Europe 2020 Strategy goals in these fields. The seven-year Programme targets all stakeholders who can help shape the development of appropriate and effective employment and social legislation and policies, across the EU-27, EFTA-EEA and EU candidate and pre-candidate countries.
