Community wealth building: Scotland
An online workshop exploring the fundamentals and CLES’s latest thinking around community wealth building and how it applies in Scotland.
About the workshop
In this workshop you will be taken through the five pillars of community wealth building, what they are, what they mean in practice and what it looks like when action is taken on each pillar in a place. The session will invite participants to explore community wealth building in the Scottish context and evaluate its key role in developing a wellbeing economy. By the end of the workshop you will have had a comprehensive introduction to community wealth building theory, practice and its application in Scotland.
Who’s it for?
The introductory workshop is for anyone who wants to develop their approach to community wealth building, particularly as it relates to the forthcoming Community Wealth Building Bill in Scotland.
We particularly encourage elected representatives, policy makers, and members of co-operatives, social enterprises, and the voluntary and community sector to attend.
