I have been involved with community currencies since 1993, when I set up a Local Exchange Trading System in rural Wales, still trading today. I went on to co-found the Wales Institute for Community Currencies at the university of Newport, supporting community organisations in South Wales to establish time banks to aid community development in the ex-mining areas.
In 2007 I established Value for People, a consultancy and training practice specialising in support for community currencies and co-production of public services.
How did you come across this network?
Already knew of P2P Foundation and came across a post here on a Google alert.
Well, John, I'm back in Germany, too, "left of Berlin" - looking after my mum. The monetary front keeps growing on the web, thanks to videos above all else, after two face-to-face meetings this year. In terms of raising awareness, we've done well, but clearly not well enough...
In terms of stable currencies, I keep waiting for miracles...
Good luck with Value for People!
