Are the developments you see in your place focused on raising property prices and maximizing rent extraction? Right around the country people are organizing to change this depressing normality and, instead, to build local economies that are more focused on the needs of the people who live in them. By looking at new municipalism, community wealth building, newer legal & financial mechanisms, and community produced alternative development plans this participative session will provide activists and ordinary people with the tools, knowledge and confidence they need to start reclaiming ownership of their places.
