Sustainable Currencies

The term ‘Sustainable Currency’ refers to ANY LASTING ALTERNATIVE TO OUR CURRENT DEBT-BASED MONEY SYSTEM. Other terms in circulation include Complimentary Currencies, Alternative Currencies, and Local Currencies. See the FAQs section for more information. The key components of a sustainable currency are…

LOCALIZED TO STRENGTHEN COMMUNITIES
Sustainable Currencies circulate within individual communities, allowing people to self-determine, uninhibited by centralized governance and autonomous from unelected and anonymous bureaurcrats.
 
FREE FROM CREDIT OR INTEREST RATE
Sustainable Currencies seek to end the abuse of loaning at interest. The interest on money, mainstream economists would argue, is a necessary and useful tool no different to, say, painkillers. But the truth is, since money is loaned into existence at interest it creates a self-perpetuating debt which is mathematically impossible to repay. This allows a small number of people to appropriate whole indebted governments and programs for their own agenda. Money that represents value, rather than debt, does not perpetuate this abuse.

COMPLIMENTARY TO NATIONAL CURRENCY
Sustainable Currencies are a choice, based on the individuals’ needs and desires. They are complimentary to currency already in use, they are not enforced. Therefore, they allow individuals to move gradually away from the risk of owning national currency and choose their own level of participation.

DESIGN AND QUALITY THAT INSTILLS CONFIDENCE
One criticism of local, complimentary and alternative currencies is their tendency to novelty value. The administration of a local currency scheme is important, but in order for a new currency to be taken seriously, it must have the level of design expected of any well-traded national currency. The Sustainable Currency Project puts the visual design of local money first, in providing quality design for money that stands for integrity.

THE SUSTAINABLE CURRENCY PROJECT provides currency design for communities, individuals and organisations who are in the process of implementing their own local money systems.
