On March 28 in Barcelona will be held a public presentation of the European project Commonfare by BIN Italy, Italian research partner. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Novact Association and the Universitat Oberta de Catalunia, and under the patronage of the Municipality of Barcelona. It will be an opportunity to discuss new welfare systems, the basic income instrument and complementary currencies, starting with the example of Rec (Real Economy Currency), the social currency that is being tested in the Catalan city. The Rec is a system of exchange of citizens complementary to the euro, which allows transactions in a community between individuals, institutions and firms that accept it. The meeting will also be attended by the commoner whose story was the most adherent to the call that we launched on commonfare.net a few weeks ago. Let's go Commonfare!. Let's go Commonfare!
