Session 3 Activity 3

Setting up a time bank


30 min.


An alternative content for an educational programme can be related to social networking, as older people often lack social networks in which they can get validated for their competences and knowledge. 

Learners start from a personal reflection on the competences they have (and others can benefit from) and the needs they would like others to offer help with (use the worksheet attached bellow). After that, learners will learn about how they can start a time bank in their community or within their training group – the image about the circle of exchange can be used to explain the concept of a time bank.
