How to Get Involved

Working together to create real economic change

The Bristol Pound community is made up of a large group of diverse opinions, voices and skills, all working together to create real economic change in our city. It’s about more than just money; we believe that we can be the force which pulls people together to learn about and campaign for new economics in Bristol. Being a member of the Bristol Pound is more than just spending money. You are invited to work with us on how we create a new economy for our city.

Join the Bristol Pound members meet up

Bristol Pound members group meets monthly to self-organise and campaign for economic change in Bristol. We hold talks, share news from the independent currency movements and technology and self-organise; planning events, campaigns and projects to help advocate the Bristol Pound. Joining the Bristol Pound members group gives you the chance to take ownership of your currency and influence the direction we take it in. See our blog for details of the next event.

Bristol Pound is part of the Independent Money Alliance

The Bristol Pound is just one part of a global movement working to change the way people interact with money. In 2014, the Bristol Pound was part of a group that set up the Independent Money Alliance to help other groups launch their own independent currencies. Through the IMA, groups can be supported in shared knowledge, technology and best practice. We have worked with community groups to establish currencies in Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Exeter. The IMA hold an annual conference.
