Summit: overwhelming demand means a change of venue

Following overwhelming demand, CLES will be relocating this year’s Community Wealth Building Summit to The Florence Institute in Liverpool (the Florrie).

In the end it came down to a matter of wanting as many people as possible to join us in building the Community Wealth Building movement.

Time to Build an Inclusive Local Economy in Northern Ireland

On Thursday 30th May Development Trusts NI (DTNI) launched Time to Build an Inclusive Local Economy, a charter that sets out how to build local wealth and address the increasing inequalities in our society.
