The TUI is committed towards promoting time policies — the organisation of time in order to build a more egalitarian, more sustainable, more efficient, and healthier society. In order to do so, it works in different projects, together with institutions and civil society from all around the world, that aim at promoting such a new distribution of time.
Time policies in local and regional governments
Time policies affect our daily life and, therefore, they need to be promoted at the closest, most direct level to citizens. In order to do so, the TUI works with different local and regional governments that are promoting time organisation with different tools. Such projects are related with a specific framework —Time Agreements—, which allows a City Council to establish a permanent dialogue with all stakeholders involved with times of the city.
International coordination is also needed, so local and regional time policies are not only inscribed in specific contexts. The TUI is committed towards bringing together innovative institutions that are already implementing time policies at their respective areas of competence.
Projects with civil society or other social agents
The TUI works with different representatives from civil society, as time organisation requires going beyond institutional work. Together with sectoral organisations, it works with several projects aimed at increasing awareness on time-related issues. Moreover, it also focusses in working with companies and other type of organisations (such as NGO, labour unions, etc) to promote healthier, more efficient, and more equal working times.
