An allowance in complementary currency (convertible in Euros after six months) is acknowledged to trainees and can be spent only to purchase goods and services sold by the local retailers participating to the initiative. This case raised many reflections which will be developed in a seminar opened to sector’s experts, students and civil society. The seminar will take place in San Martino in Rio.
