a Conference to be held on
Saturday 10th November 2012

Co-operation is the hope of the world!
On the eve of Rememberance Day, we hope to envision 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 morning session, led by Mary Fee from 10am will include • introductions • brief overview of community currencies in the UK • strategies used by local organisers to continue energising their groups • latest developments. The afternoon session, led by John Courtneidge from 2pm will include an overview of the co-op movement followed by 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.

The cost will be - £5 (concessions and/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.
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 activis, and co-ordinated by Mary Fee, Secretary of LETSlink UKt. 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.
