Quote from: Tony Budak on August 12, 2015, 11:24:52 amThanks so much for kicking these ideas around in yesterdays conference call. I'm sending this to support that conversation.Time Bank Wales is doing a major rewrite of their web site. It is in process sorry. But on the home page the 2nd paragraph says; Over the past decade other models of time banking have emerged, the principal one being person to organisation (P2O) time banking. The organisation, whether public or third sector, issues the time credits to thank people for contributing to the aims and goals of the organisation. The organisation is the 'time bank' and also provides a menu of options for people to use their credits which could include access to leisure centres, theatres, educational and sporting centres. For both models the general modus operandi is one hour of active citizenship = one time credit.http://www.timebankingwales.org.uk/Yes the above is a heaver lift than the current practice of peer to peer time banking. But there are returns in terms of collective and network application or use. And I believe person to organization (P2O) allows Co-Production to easily emerge as practice.Comments please?
