People from the UK were joined by nations who had all travelled to attend London’s Climate Camp 2009 and along the way contributing to our UK economy. The majority of visitors wanted simply to be present and share their concerns.
I was taken by people’s genuine kindness, demonstrated in the personal efforts of individuals placing themselves first, each in their own, personal way, contributing, sharing and peacefully demonstrating their concerns for the world to see.
With the whole world watching, these beautiful efforts were quashed by the attendance of riot police, effectively barricading a global display of peaceful protest.

What is the HOurBank? Introduced by Naomi - 25th April 2009
The HOurBank is a scheme in Southwark where people earn ‘HOurs’ for helping others or doing something for their community. The ‘HOurs’ that they bank can then be used when they need a helping hand from someone else. It is called a Mutual Exchange Scheme.

Welcome to Community Exchange LondonLocal Exchange Trading Scheme (L.E.T.S.)
This project is the result of many developments over many years, and much collaboration. At last we have found a way to connect up all those in London who do not have a LETS scheme near to them through this "Internet Green LETS" trading in "links". Above are some of the people who have been involved with these developments - there are many others. Inside you can read more history, connect to the links, and above all LOG ON!
