Grow your own economy

26 Oct 2018

Touching on ideas of agency, disillusionment and the impact of globalisation, this episode explores how communities are being forced out of necessity to re-create their own local economies.

Buying up assets, building partnerships and investing in people are just a few of the ways local areas are becoming more inclusive, and in turn securing wealth that will remain within the community to support the people that need it most.

Participants: Hazel Sheffield, author of ‘Building wealth’. Dan Spencer, West End Morecambe Big Local. Matt Leach, Local Trust. Rosie Carter, Hope not hate. Becca Antink, The RSA. Matt Buckham, Bromford. Joe Earl, Economy. Jess Prendergast, Onion Collective.
