Community Currencies in Action


The Community Currencies in Action project (CCIA) is a transnational partnership working to develop and deliver community currency demonstrations in several EU-member states across the North West of Europe. Community currencies can be designed and executed in a number of different ways: they can take the form of reward programmes, credit card schemes, saving accounts or even traditional banking products. CCIA will lead the way in sharing knowledge and best practices to enable communities throughout Europe to grow stronger in their ability to achieve vibrant and prosperous networks that are efficient on social, economical and environmental perspectives.


Community currencies (CCS) have been used for a long time as an answer to local problems in communities all over the world. The CCIA project will continue on this path and will support initiatives and experts in the field of community currencies in the form of pilot programmes. Part funded through the European Commission, CCIA will design, develop and implement community currencies across NW Europe; providing a rigorously tested package of support structures serving CC-practitioners and the general public.


CCIA is co-funded by INTERREG IVB North-West-Europe (NWE), a financial instrument of the European Union’s Cohesion Policy. It funds projects which support transnational cooperation. The aim is to find innovative ways to make the most of territorial assets and tackle shared problems of member states, regions and other authorities. For more information about NWE:
