From the Transition Network website (link):
Transition Network’s REconomy Project has just published a fantastic new report entitled The New Economy in 20 Enterprises. Pulled together by Michelle Denton and Fiona Ward, it opens like this,
“Welcome to the UK’s top twenty ‘Transition oriented’ social enterprises. Combined these enterprises have a turnover of £3.5 million and provide paid employment for more than 100 people. We think they’re rather brilliant examples of people just doing stuff…”.
…The report, like the three Local Economic Evaluations/Blueprints published recently, demonstrates how in this time of austerity, community economic development represents a sizeable opportunity for economic regeneration in a way that produces more resilient communities. It shows that this approach is already working. But what, I wondered, would it look like if government got behind and supported this approach? What might such support look like in practice?
