There is no ‘best’ way of running a timebank. Each one is different – they can be ‘plug-in’ timebanks that can help to incentivise particiption and volunteering, or ‘co-production’ timebanks that take longer to seed but are important mechanisms in changing the relationships that traditionally exist between citizen and state.
