|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.
