In a world racked by division and enmity, 40 people from 11 different countries went to an English seaside resort, dodged the rain and had fun.

They are 40 extraordinary people with personal experience of the troubles of the world: families in ISIS occupied Iraq, and in Congo;   years of asylum application; rebuilding life after mental illness.

We enjoyed simple things: eating fish and chips, playing the arcades, paddling, taking photos and seeing each other in a different light.

The trip cost 7 Time Credits, a combined total of over 280 hours which they spent making the lives of others better and the environment cleaner.  TimeBuilders shows that, no matter what their problems, people don’t want stuff for free. They want to contribute, to make a difference, to build relationships and make a better world. This is good news because if we want to create a better world we need everyone.
