Imagine what could be achieved by a local community that works together to fully support one another emotionally, mentally, physically, and economically. Really think about it and imagine yourself living in such a community. How would that feel? How would it play out in our day to day reality?
I think we have an opportunity right now to change the way we live. Unless you are living in a hole, you are no doubt aware that our existing systems and institutions are increasingly failing us, with basic human rights and needs not being met. If you can see past the smoke and mirrors of the politicians, you will also see that we are plunging into an economic depression, bigger that we have ever seen in our lifetimes. Things are already starting to get expensive and this is likely just the tip of the ice-burg.
It's time for a change - one that doesn't involve waiting for someone, politician or otherwise, to 'save' us. We can take control of our own destiny and create new systems and structures based on people helping people, and generating a life of harmony and abundance. A new society, as it were, built on collective efforts and skills.
We are looking to increase numbers to pilot a scheme where time and skills are exchanged. It is a tried and tested format known as 'time banking'. In addition to this we have a strong community base in which like-minded individuals can come together to continue enjoying the old normal. We hold fortnightly meetings and hold social events and family gatherings, among other activities. Ours is an all inclusive, supportive network and we'd love you to join us!
HOW OUR TIME BANKING SYSTEM WORKS:
• members submit their skills, knowledge and experience
• members are under no pressure whatsoever to contribute their time, however we aim for members to donate an hour a week if and when needed
• the time donated to the community hub is banked and can be exchanged for other goods, skills, trades etc.
• ** some services may have a surcharge for materials
• to be successful the objective is to keep your personal time account as low in time as possible.
For further information and to become a member of Riverton TimeBank please request to become a member. Please note: at the moment, we are only offering membership to people living in Riverton and surrounds.
