A try for a sustainable human centered economics in global scale

Ağustos 2, 2010

Lately I have received an e-mail from Martin Simon, founding advisor of Timebanking UK for international collaboration to help to plan an international alliance of timebankers to accelerate and scale the dissemination of sustainable human centered economics.

In the e-mail there was a link for a proposal for sustainable dissemination of timebanking at global scale written by Stephanie Rearick, TimeBanks USA co-chair, founder and Director of Dane Co. TimeBank and Preston Austin, Communications and Community Specialist, advisor to TBUSA.

The mission of the document is to increase the potential of all communities to be more independent within the global monetary economy by maximizing cooperation and community resources focused on community needs, fostering just economics for all communities. And the goal is to develop and implement a plan to disseminate timebanking widely and internationally, in many types of communities, while maintaining adherence to operating principles consistent with the core values behind timebanking.

If you want to take a look to a detailed plan for 2 years project, yo can see the documet here

I also want to share with you a course about Design Tools for Creating Community Currencies which is organized by Findhorn Foundation College with their own words: “Our money system is in crisis. We can try to reform a broken system or we can design new ones to support the transition to a sustainable and resilient society. Local money gives us a proven tool to deal with the effects of financial crises, community breakdown, climate change and peak oil. It supports communities to use their own assets to solve local problems, meet local needs and achieve local goals: everything from community gardens to renewable energy and local economic regeneration.”

It seems just as a try? Maybe or maybe not…Let’s see all together, through our experience on time banking!
