2014 Slow Living Breakout Session: Edgar Cahn, Time Banking
No more throwaway people â€” Our economy doesnâ€™t value such core activities as home care, community service, social justice activism and skill sharing. Time Banking addresses that crucial unmet need. In this session we present Time Banking as a model of economics that acknowledges the value of all people and the dignity of all work. Our panel will explore the many uses of Time Banks to create a more just society, looking forward and applying these ideas in new and more inter-connected ways that will build our impact.
Edgar Cahn, founder of Time Banking, author of No More Throwaway People; Stephanie Rearick, Director of the Dane County, Wisconsin Time Bank, and Gwen Hallsmith, author, founder of Global Community Initiatives. Moderated by Linda Weil, former Time Bank coordinator
