In a world crowded with opinions but often empty of hope, STIR magazine is essential reading. You won't find its combination of provocative theory and practical example anywhere else. I'm yet to finish an edition of STIR without changing the way I see the world.
—Anna Laycock, Finance Innovation Lab
Stir is fast becoming the house magazine of the cooperative commons
movement. Each issue brings together serious and authoritative editorial
on a wide range of UK and international subjects. It's a must-read.
—Sion Whellens, Calverts Co-operative
