a Conference to be held on
Saturday 10th November 2012

Co-operation is the hope of the world!
On a significant date we hope to en-vision a peaceful and prosperous, community co-operative future!

To mark 2012 - this year being the UN year of Co-operatives - LETS community and pro-cooperative activists will meet from 10am to 4pm at the Magdalen Centre, St Mary's Church, Eversholt Street, London NW1 4BN (beside Euston Station)

The programme will be decided by participation - "occupy-style" - and will likely cover • brief history and overview of community currencies in the UK • related community initiatives • strategies used by local organisers to continue energising their groups • latest developments in community currencies • co-operative game-style experiences • Q&A after each session, with a final panel session on how we can move forward from here to a more co-operative future.

Places are limited, so please book early.

The cost will be - £5 (concessionsand/or or food share), £10 (inclusive price), £15 (sustaining price), £20 (solidarity price) - this will include a hot vegetarian lunch and arrival, mid-morning and mid-afternoon hot drinks. We hope that you'd like to contribute to a co-operative feast of munchies (fruit, savouries and sweet things, etc) as shared snacks. To help cover costs and to make this as financially-accessible as possible, please consider making a 'solidarity' donation even if you can't come (all supluses will go in the LETSlink general development fund).

We recognise that co-operating, peacefully on 10th November 2012 will 'seasons' the day following, which is the ten-year anniversary of 11/11
For all, in all, by all - Let's co-operate!

The first LETS Co-operate conference was held - with support from Co-operatives UK - in November 2002, inspired by John Courtneidge, who is a co-operator, quaker, and community activist. Our intention was to promote LETS (Local Exchange Trading Schemes) as co-operative initiatives encouraging community participation. This aim of this conference is to review progress - ten years on - and make some future plans.
