Community Wealth Building is gaining momentum in towns and cities in the UK. It has been spearheaded by those who see the failings of our current economic development model and have developed a new, democratic and socially just way of doing things.
Collaboration is at the heart of this movement, and so through the Centre for Excellence we are developing a network of community wealth builders to take back control of our local economies.
Who can join?
Anyone can join. This movement is comprised of citizens, as well as organisations from the public, social and solidarity and private sectors.
By joining the Community Wealth Builders network, you’ll be joining a movement of progressive, passionate and practice orientated people bringing about lasting transformative change in local economic practice. You will be able to stay on top of latest activities and contribute to future developments by participating in network events.
