CREDITO: a moeda de Damanhur

19/05/2009

Awarded by the United Nations as a model for a sustainable future, Damanhur is an eco-society based upon ethical and spiritual values. Damanhur promotes a culture of peace and balanced development through solidarity, voluntary work, respect for the environment, art and social and political commitment. Founded in 1975, the Federation numbers around 1,000 citizens and extends across approximately 500 hectares of territory scattered across Valchiusella and the area of Alto Canavese, in the foothills of the Piedmont Alps. Damanhur has centres and points of contact in Italy, Europe, Japan and the United States, and collaborates with international organisations committed to the social, civic and spiritual development of the planet


The complementary monetary system of Damanhur.

The Credit has the aim of developing a new form of economy based on ethical values of co-operation and solidarity.

The Damanhurian complementary monetary system has a high ideal value and has been created to give back to money its original meaning: to be a means to facilitate change based upon an agreement between the parties. For this reason it is called Credit: to remind us that money is only a tool through which one gives, in fact, ‘credit’, that is to say, trust. Thanks to this monetary system, the Damanhurians want to give nobility to the concept of money, by not considering it an end in itself but only a functional tool for exchange between people who share ideal values.

The use of the Credit, in fact, allows all those who are part of this system to see themselves as part of the cultural, social, economic and ethical values linked to the sustainability of the planet, respect for human beings and every living creature, to the quality of work and the added value of products thought of and realised with care and love.
