#20yearsoftimebanking

Having lived in London many years ago (before I discovered the joys of Pembrokeshire), it is always nice to go back and experience the hustle and bustle I associate with London town. This time however, there is no time for that as I am back for the Time Banking UK Conference – Celebrating 20 Years of Time Banking in the UK.

In case you are new to the term, time banking is a system of exchange that uses time as currency. It is a way of people being credited for their time – every hour given is rewarded with a time credit. In turn, time credits can be spent buying hours of time from other people within the time bank, or by accessing a service provided by a project sponsor – these can include leisure centres, bowling alleys or theatres. The time banking philosophy is that everyone has something to give – and it is true. Sometimes, what people have to give has been overlooked and time banking helps to redress that by seeking out, using and rewarding people for their contributions to community life. . .
