Is a friendly and informal alliance of organisations and people committed to establish an inclusive ecosystem of contributors who will develop tools and methodologies for both reporting the economy as an ecosystem of contracts and actually implementing it. Our objective is to connect the legal, accounting and business functions into a united system, interfacing between these three worlds and to support a dynamic visualisation of the economy though contracts that will help policy makers to go beyond GDP, and will improve company relationships and operations.
