The case of The Time Bank of Agia Varvara
And The Ovolos currency based in the cities of Patras and Thessalonike
Rebublished from Ellen Kalisperati Sociologist
The Time Bank organises educational workshops, where people from Athens and other Greek cities participate, in order to learn more about Time Banking and hastrained many people who have participated in the establishment of other Time Banksor other parallel currency schemes. Since autumn 2011 the Time Bank of the European Network of Women tries to create local nodes in Greater Athens area, to beable to manage the new members who applied for participation. However, in December 2011, the really active members were around 45 with many membership applications pending. I have been a registered member with the Time Bank of the European Network of Women since its very beginning in autumn2005.
