Hundreds of activists are encouraged to participate with his or her individual skills helping the movement grow. As we are working globally to support local economies our approach is to follow a glocal organizational model mainly with global chat rooms and physcial local nodes.
We are constantly looking for skilled people who want to help in developing this beautiful movement. Technical discussions take place in the FairCoin-developer Telegram chat group, which is mirrored to fairchat (supports reading without login and automatic translation when logged in) and to xmpp/jabber at firstname.lastname@example.org . For general questions read the "Ask Anything"-group on fairchat or on Telegram . Once a year we meet at a summer or wintercamp.
We maintained a list of all chat groups of the FairCoop ecosystem (2017-2019) as well as a map with all existing local nodes - but this is not up-to-date anymore If you cannot find a local node in your area we are happy to help and support you in setting one up. Ask your question here:
Gathering at Summercamps & Hackathons
All supporters coordinate their work in chat groups and issue trackers. Sometimes we meet physically or pop up at meetups.
Here is a list of upcoming and past events. We might not know all. If you want to invite a FairCoin core team member for your meet-up, for consulting or a presentation, please do not hesitate to send a message in the chat above.
Weekly Sprint Meetings
In the spirit of the results of the wintercamp, we try to meet every Friday at 16:00 CET at a virtual fairmeeting room to report on our progress and release blockers on our task list.
Did we miss any event taking place somewhere else? Please drop us a note.

We met online on several days to discuss issues of governance, how to extend the market and revamping the nodes by updating build pipelines. See also our Wintercamp 2021/2022 blog.
