About Positive Money

Positive Money is a leading international new economy think tank and campaigning organisation re-imagining our money, banking, and the economy for the wellbeing of people, communities and the planet. We are part of a growing and collective force for economic systems change. Our mission is to reform money and banking to build a fair, democratic and sustainable economy.

We produce ground-breaking research and policy proposals, inform the public and politicians, regularly appear in the media, and mobilise the public behind people-powered campaigns. We believe in radical systems change and work to achieve lasting change on several fronts simultaneously: change in public understanding, the public and media debate, and at the policy and academic level. We work across three key areas: democratising money and banking, a green and fair European Central Bank, and financing the just transition of homes across Europe.

We are committed to cultivating a culture of support, respect, open communication, and collaboration that encourages creativity and innovation. We foster an environment where diverse perspectives are valued and where work arrangements are tailored to accommodate individual needs, ensuring every team member can contribute their best work.
