Merits - Milan .. "is a Milan (Italy) -originated platform created to facilitate the transition to a sustainable economy, by assisting and rewarding individual and collective behaviours that generate sustainable and shared prosperity. Society needs people and organisations to invest in little, daily acts of generosity, courage and care for people and nature.

Merits helps people to realise that they are not alone. It rewards their positive behaviour with digital tokens that, according to each specific project, can be used to buy qualified services or goods from small local business or to pay fees of public services or taxes.

Merits has already implemented and ended a first experimental project of the Municipality of Milan, Department of Social Policies, rewarding with merits tokens a number of refugees volunteering to clean and take care of the public green of a neighbourhood of Milan." (
