Echo is an Economy of Hours: a marketplace without the money, where East London people and businesses can buy and sell their skills, services and resources, using a currency called Echoes. The exchange rate couldn’t be easier: 1 hour = 1 Echo.
It’s for anyone and everyone, bringing together local people, organisations and businesses to create a community-wide economy of hours where the more you put in, the more you get back.
Echo specialise in helping organisations from small start-ups to freelancers to local community organisations unlock dormant resources to trade, ensuring they can offer a wealth of skills and services to meet their members’ diverse needs.
Next Thurs 14th April, 6:30pm, Echo are holding a meet up at Nooks Cafe in Maryland for local residents and businesses who are keen to learn how they can start to do more with less money. You’ll meet your neighbours, get to know fellow Echo members, and discover what’s on offer in the marketplace – everything from language lessons and coding workshops to professional training and studio space, and all for Echoes of course.
Tickets are free and available here. Come along for a drink, meet your neighbours and learn how you can buy and sell your time and skills with others in the community whilst saving cash and making friends. Better still, the first drink’s on Echo!
Pop on down for a drink from 6.30pm… you never know who you might meet!
