TIME BANKING

The Time Banking is a new way to do activities and learn with other people but you don't pay with money but with time. You have to enrole on a list offering an activity you can do and then you recieve a ticket which allows you to choose an activity offered by another person. It's a good philosofy of life nowadays since we are in crisis. So we decided to organize a Time Banking in the high school. Monik is the responsible of the list and the tickets. For any enquiries and suggestions, we are on facebook too.

WHY ENGLAND?
The transition movement started in Kinsale and  later in Totnes by the hand of Rob Hopkins. In 2001 he began teaching a Practical Sustainablity course  at the Community College in Kinsale Ireland, based on the principles of Permaculture. As you can see, England is the country with most transition initiatives.

Research work about transition towns

On the 16th November 2011, Núria, Laia and Mònica, three students of 4th ESO, working on their Treball de Recerca about TRANSITION TOWNS gave their classmates in the same year a brushstroke about what transition initiatives are, as the whole class is starting an English project about the same topic. With the project we would like to visit some pioneering English Transition towns.
