The current economy is completely detached from people’s lifestyles and present-day environmental issues. We are becoming increasingly consumer driven. It is vital to transform the economy so that communities can benefit from it in a sustainable, united, and fair way. Swapping goods or services is proving to be an ideal solution. * Lawyer Tammy Moreau, Fredericton, Nouveau-Brunswick, and is a member of the family selection committee for the Habitat for Humanity project. She hopes to make the world of real estate more philanthropic by helping low-income families achieve their dream of becoming homeowners. * Maude Léonard lives in Montreal, and is one of the brains behind an unusual venture: Troc-tes-trucs. The organisation aims to promote responsible consumption by organising community swap meets. * Gerald Wheatley in Calgary, Alberta, coordinates the Calgary Dollars system, local currency used as a tool for economic development. He believes that our centralized economy could benefit from parallel complementary systems. Also available in French: réer une économie à l'échelle humaine
