Challenge

Our goal with ECHO was to mark their 10 years of community driven action through a story of radical change from a small, localised time bank, to a global community rooted in local Hubs in East and West London.

Impact

We are currently at the early stages of impact with ECHO. Our goal is the monitor how ECHO build a new economy that looks beyond just money, and fosters the exchange of real value that helps communities thrive - the sharing of skills, advice, relationships, networks and goodwill.

From the get-go, Driftime really understood our needs and brought a fresh perspective. The process has been really collaborative and communication has been excellent throughout. It’s been great to continually work with a team that share the same values as us.
