Event: Forum for New Local Economies

You may want to join other activists, organisers, and changemakers from across Devon for a special event. Please put this in your diary – Devon Convergence: Forum for New Local Economies – February 7th, 9:30-4:30, Exeter.

With austerity kicking in, we’re facing a critical crossroads, but also a massive opportunity to lead progressive change right here in Devon. There are exciting community-led economic solutions emerging across the region, as well as effective strategies, innovative projects, and energetic collaborators. I’m inviting you to join us and see where it might lead and what new opportunities present themselves for supporting your work – our work, and because together we are more powerful. This event could be the turning point.

The day will be crafted to ensure a stimulating and productive experience. The programme will be available in January. It’s running on a ‘gift culture’ basis because we are working for economic change from the ground up and we want to make sure everyone can participate. There will be opportunities for making new connections, sharing stories about projects and learning. We’ll hear about new currencies, new ways to empower community-based enterprise, and opportunities for regional-scale cooperative enterprise. The organizers are from Transition Towns and REconomy, Social Enterprise Networks, Sustainability Groups and NGOs across the region.
