June 13, Online, Community Wealth Building: Local Economics for People & Planet
Event Description

With Community Wealth Building, the aim is instead to keep money in the area, by encouraging an area's big ‘anchor institutions’, such as councils and hospitals, to join together to make sure as much as possible of their supply chain spending goes to local businesses, cooperatives and social enterprises, and to provide the support and training to local people to grow the local businesses that can provide for them.

As well as building the local economy, this allows greater control over how money is spent. Enhancing local control allows local councils and other anchor institutions to accelerate the transition to the green economy. In this way, building jobs and building a green economy are proven to go hand in hand, which will help to make the case for investment at the national scale.
