how time banking works
   
 

Edgar S. Cahn started out as a law professor, was Bobby Kennedy’s speech writer and a civil rights campaigner.

He is now best known as the originator of time banking, which operates in 22 countries throughout the world. Edgar hit upon this revolutionary idea while recovering in hospital from a heart attack. For the first time in his life he was dependent on others and unable to repay the people who were caring for him.

Time banking is now widely accepted as the ideal way to value the contributions that people make to rebuilding community and to ‘co-producing’ our public services.

Time banking and co-production are explained in detail in his book - ‘No More Throw Away People’.
