In the WHCatalysis TimeBank we apply time as currency. As everyones time is limited to 24hours a day, timebanking allows people to apply their time more wisely and at the same time contribute to community.
1 hour = 1 time credit (₵)
By identifying your skills and offering hours of your time, you earn time credits that may be used to redeem offers from any of the other offers in the TimeBank. Timebanking is relevant to everyone, from people who are able to access services and help they otherwise could not afford, to people who wants unique experiences when travelling.
The following resources available to users and administrators:
- Manuals: A user manual and an administrator manual.
- Forum: A user-to-user forum is available where community admins can help each other with Cyclos.
- Newsletter: For relevant and interesting news, please subscribe to the World Heritage Catalysis newsletter.
While the TimeBank takes a global approach, it also hosts a number of smaller site specific or cause related groups. Please visit our project site for an overview of all groups, and contact us directly if you are interested in setting up your own group.
If you encounter any bugs while using the TimeBank, please let us know. We will do our best to solve any issues as soon as possible. Please also feel free to contact us if you have suggestions that may help us manage and improve the TimeBank.
