Glasgow Pound

Glasgow Pound Working Group

Our People Powered Money: Building a community currency for Glasgow event took place on Wednesday 30 November 2016 at Glasgow City Chambers.
The Report from the Theory of Change workshop at the event is now available online: (download PDF)

The Glasgow Pound Working Group seek to build on the success of alternative currencies in other parts of the UK - from the Bristol Pound to the new HullCoin - developing a unique model to meet Glasgow's complex needs.

Bringing together the energy and enthusiasm of existing alternative economies in the city (see below), the Glasgow Pound Working Group aims to work with the local authority and the city's small businesses to design and establish a new citywide community currency to serve the people of Glasgow and build a stronger local economy.
