About us

Groundswell Research Associates (GRA) seeks to leverage the effectiveness of local Asset-Based Community Development initiatives by exploring the potential of digital social currencies in enabling and activating local sharing economies. We seek to catalyse and facilitate sharing economy initiatives that address local challenges, meet local needs, provide inclusive opportunities for wellbeing, and build strong and resilient communities and institutions. We seek to address market and institutional failures and to fill gaps, such as the underdevelopment of preventive infrastructure and institutions.
