Film "Fixing The Future" & Discussion on TimeBanks

  • Apr 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come learn about NW NJ TimeBank which we are getting ready to launch soon. The concept of timebanking is an organized way to “pay-it-forward.” For every hour you invest doing work for someone via the TimeBank, you receive an hour that you can spend on any service offered via the TimeBank (not just with the person to whom you provided the service). On the surface this premise seems simple, but when looked at more deeply, timebanking offers new ways of thinking about time, wealth and community.

In “Fixing the Future”, host David Brancaccio, of public radio’s Marketplace and NOW on PBS, visits people and organizations across America that are attempting a revolution: the reinvention of the American economy. By featuring communities using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity, Fixing the Future inspires hope and renewal in a people overwhelmed by economic collapse. The film highlights effective, local practices such as: local business alliances, community banking, time banking/hour exchange, worker cooperatives and local currencies
