Low-impact trade & exchange

Money is the key to system change. Mutual Credit is an exchange medium, and Use-Credit Obligations a means of saving and investing, that are moneyless, don’t involve interest or inflation, and don’t require banks.

Mutual Credit Services provide free and open-sourced software, training and support for local mutual credit ‘clubs’ that your business can join, and continue to trade and thrive even when money is scarce.

supports and promotes the Credit Commons Protocol, that allows different mutual credit clubs and other community currency groups to trade with each other in a new global trading network.

There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
