In Conversation with the Alternative Economists
– Time for Change & Creating a fairer society:
Monday 22 March 2021 – 6pm
About this FREE Event:
The pandemic has laid bare the systemic problems and horrific levels of inequality in our society leaving many of us hungry for radical change. But there’s good news. Local people are already working on ways to create a fairer society. This event brings together four of those people to discuss Community Wealth Building, an alternative and fairer approach to local economic development that is showing good outcomes in terms of reducing poverty, income inequality, enhancing local economic resilience and creating a low carbon and more democratic economy.
This conversation will explain the approach while exploring the Community Wealth Building work that is currently taking place in the form of Co-operative Development, a campaign for a Mutual Bank and grassroots community participation. It will also be an opportunity to explore how we can all drive this approach to create an economy that can weather shocks and future proof us against other crises, including the climate crisis.
Four Alternative Economists are Mary McManus, Bridget Meehan, Lee Robb and Tiziana O’Hara and they are in conversation with Maurice McCartney.
