Interactive Plenary Sessions:

In partnership with leaders from around the world, the conference will feature a series of interactive plenary sessions to activate dynamic learning communities using TimeBanking in its many forms.  Hear from TimeBank leaders who present their experience of creating change in their communities, using the tools and the core values of TimeBanking in the areas of youth, family, health, local economies, agriculture, energy, environment, arts, and culture.

This is also your chance to jump in.  All plenary sessions will involve participants in sharing their work and dreams of using TimeBanking to promote change in their communities.  Gain a better understanding of how you can share your experiences and give and receive ongoing mutual support and assistance to crate, build, and organize your TimeBank.  Find out how we can work together to define our future direction for building a thriving and sustainable TimeBanking movement at local, regional, national, and international levels.

Community Weaver 2.0

Community Weaver 2.0 will be unveiled during the plenary on Friday August 5, 2011.  CW 2.0 has all the features that TimeBankers have asked for over the years, and is sleeker, swifter, and easier to use.  It is also customizable, so your TimeBank can have its own unique look and feel.  Review the new software with us, ask your questions, and be on the forefront of this new development.

Plan to learn as well about our new, upcoming TimeBanks Network Action Hub.  The ‘hub” will soon make it possible for people who take up TimeBanking to engage in peer-to-peer learning and sharing in ways we have only been able to dream of.  We will be looking for your thoughts and ideas.
