Positive Money is a research and campaigning organisation that seeks to reform the money and banking system in order to support a fair, democratic, and sustainable economy. We were founded in 2010 as a civil society response to the 2008 global financial crisis. Money and banking has implications for many of the social, economic, and environmental problems we face today yet remains poorly understood and insufficiently covered in public debate. We are a non-profit company limited by guarantee.
In 2017 Positive Money undertook a lot of activity including:
- Hosting our biggest ever event in Parliament, a 10 years after the crash event with Ed Balls and Martin Wolf (FT), and packed out events at the Labour and Conservative Party conferences
- Significant amount of media coverage including front page of City AM reporting a poll of MPs we undertook on their knowledge of the money system
- Online videos including a viral video around the election on the unfair money and banking system
- Reaching over 65,000 supporters and building a vibrant network of over 35 local groups across the UK
- Launching Positive Money Europe in Brussels to continue our work there scrutinising the European Central Bank
Positive Money is looking to recruit a new Chair for its Board of Non-Executive Directors.
