Developing Europe-wide cooperation

The European Credit Initiative has two goals. It wants to help to create and strengthen a new kind of economics. And it has a concrete proposal at European level to create legal possibilities for this. For this we need exchange and cooperation with as many people as possible, in as many countries as possible.

The European Credit Initiative was founded from the working context of the Internationales Kulturzentrum Achberg e.V. in Germany and the IG-EuroVision in Austria. The two founders and managing heads of the project are Gerhard Schuster and Daniel Schily.

Active work has started in Germany, Austria and Finland. In other countries, different strings have been tied, e.g. France, Luxembourg or the Czech Republic. We have already translated our information brochure into several languages. And with the 4×7-Action the parliaments of the member countries have been informed. The development of Europe-wide networking is to be further intensified.

Achberg Team

At the seat of the supporting organisation Internationales Kulturzentrum Achberg e.V., working meetings and workshops on the European Credit Initiative take place regularly.

Credit Initiative in Finland

On the occasion of the Credit Initiative’s participation in the Lahti 2016 “Soul of Europe Conference”, the exchange and cooperation began, which then developed into a new national group for the European Credit Initiative for Finland in 2019.

As part of our “Action 4×7”, we informed members of the parliaments in the EU member states about the European Credit Initiative. In some countries we were able to hand over our packages personally.
