Towards sustainable economies[edit]

Hull

This Mutual Aid Network aims to create a chain reaction that goes back into communities. It meshes a thriving timebank with 600 members and the Hull Coin initiative, the City of Culture's 2017 nomination, which is currently mobilizing 4,000 volunteers.

"When I started the TimeBank back in 2010, I saw it as the solution to everything," says Kate Macdonald. "I realized in time that it is 'one' solution and that to have a viable parallel economy, we need different options which have strengths to use in different circumstances. When I heard Stephanie speak about Mutual Aid Networks a couple of years ago, I realized this had been what I had been looking for. What is often missed is a mechanism to join things up." [1]

Trees, woodland and forest[edit]

South Yorkshire Forest, a partnership initiative of the twelve Community Forests in England. The project was started in 1991. It is a project that aims to create attractive landscapes in the South Yorkshire area through improvement and regeneration of woodlands, wetlands, farmland, meadows, industrial sites and residential areas.
