Community wealth building

To enable more people to transform and take back control of their local economies, CLES has established the Community Wealth Building Centre of Excellence.

Who has wealth, who influences it, and who benefits from it are defining features of all economies. Community wealth building aims to reorganize wealth and the local economy, from the bottom up.

It aims to reduce the extraction of wealth, making wealth more generative and environmentally nourishing, where all assets have local roots, communities are put first and people are provided with opportunity, dignity and well-being.
