Global CES Network
The Community Exchange System is a network of around 700 exchange groups around the world. Go to the global CES website to see the full list.
Community Exchange System (CES), a free software service that helps communities manage and exchange
resources, is to be migrated to Drupal in 2014. The network currently consists of 700 more or less
active communities in 62 countries and the software has so far been translated into 22 languages.
Most of the software will be published open source, as a Drupal 8 distribution called eserai, and several
customised deployments are already planned.
In the medium term, more resources will be sought to bring together these deployments into one decentralised network, and to build a free, open source phone application suitable for recording and mobilising community activities.
Communities wanting to be part of a global, decentralised exchange network can create accounts on this website. Drupal engineers wishing to support this long-term effort should contact matslats.net. Please watch this space for a coming crowdfunding campaign.
