More about Stir to Action
Our New Economy Programme launched in October 2018 as a year-long programme of one-day workshops, three-day educational residentials, and a greenfield festival. From October 2019 - July 2020 the programme will expand to Plymouth, Bristol, London, Bradford, and Newcastle, and we also launch New Economy Youth, a seven-week programme in Brixton, London, specifically supporting 18-30 year olds to use community enterprise to regenerate the economy for local residents.
In mid-July 2019, we also launched Playground for the New Economy Festival, a three-day greenfield festival in Frome, Somerset. See the programme here.
We’ve also launched an accelerator programme, UnFound, in partnership with Co-operatives UK to support ‘platform co-operatives’. The UnFound programme offers masterclasses, mentoring, and live crowdfunding in Manchester and London. UnFound is currently delivering a UK-wide event programme to build more awareness about co-operative support for digital platforms in the tech community. You can see more about UnFound here.
