Making the economy local – building on our programs
by Ray Mylius
The REconomy Project being developed by the organisations Transition Network and Local United in the UK offers many How-to Guides which could enhance and extend our present activities. Several of the Guides are immediately relevant to our community groups and the One-Planet Market and offer strategies to expand their scope.
Guides which could apply directly to our initiatives include:
- Alternative Means of Exchange
- The Gift Economy and Community Exchange
- Starting Community-Led Food Enterprises
- and Getting Your Community on Board.
See the site www.reconomy.org and consider using the ideas for stimulating discussion in community groups.[vimeo 43032374 w=400 h=300]
