Secondments based on the exchange of knowledge and cooperative collaboration
After two months of stay Milena Santiago completed her secondment at RES (Belgium) and she shared her comments about this experience:
“Since the beginning I had the collaboration of all members at RES, they were very helpful with all my concerns and doubts. The study of RES in-situ gave the opportunity to fully understand the way a complementary currency works, and all the aspects behind it to make it successfully. Studying RES, gave me the opportunity to realize that developing a social/complementary currency could be useful when looking for helping local communities in need to improve their current situation through sustainable development initiatives”.
