COFACE internal working group meeting

“What is money?”

Friday 25th September 2020

14.00-16.00 CEST


This 2-hour online session is open to COFACE members only and will focus on the following:

  • Points of information: state of play of what COFACE-Families Europe has been doing to advocate for an economic and financial system that works better for society;
  • Capacity building: presenting a training on “What is money”, to better understand the “basics” of how finance works and therefore strengthen our policy recommendations;
  • Brainstorm on joint initiatives: as a starting point, we will examine a proposal for a VAT-related campaign presented by Gezinsbond, and discuss alternative economic models such as Doughnut economics or the Relative Theory of Money.

To register, please send an email to by Friday 25th September at 10.00am.
