Devon New Economy Gathering

Saturday April 16th

Exeter Community Centre 10 – 5 pm

A day to link organisers, activists, practitioners, and others working for economic change, and to hear about local and regional initiatives.

Join us in making the big shift happen!

  • There are exciting community-led economic solutions to austerity emerging across the region, as well as effective strategies, innovative projects and energetic collaborators. This is a chance to find out who (else) is working on a new local economy one that is more inclusive, democratically accountable, ecological and creates more wellbeing.
  • Find collaborators – How can we make it happen (more)?
