Money for Change campaign envisions an economic system that puts people and the planet’s well-being first.

By challenging the basic values of the current economic system, such as greed, competition, nature and human exploitation for the accumulation of wealth and power in the hands of the few, it aims to achieve change and truly transform the current financial and economic system.

The money flowing to climate and nature destruction will be stopped through exposing greenwashing and through legal and regulatory intervention towards financial actors providing that money. We will prevent European finance from bankrolling global industries and actors engaged in nature and climate destruction, and we will dismantle the rigged financial system.

The numerous crises people face today are not by accident but rather by design. Competition is prioritised over social responsibility, and billionaires gain power and wealth by contributing to the biggest problems we face. The greediest among us have no incentive to change this status quo because they benefit from it.

We believe that we can achieve a halt to global biodiversity loss, nature destruction and climate catastrophe passing the tipping points that would make further human intervention irrelevant. For that reason, we want Europe to become the first continent to adopt climate neutrality and move towards an economic system that functions within planetary boundaries and puts people and the planet above profit and business as usual.

We require a financial and economic system that doesn’t lead us to extinction and secures a better future for everyone.
