STIR Magazine

You won't find its combination of provocative theory and practical example anywhere else.

—Anna Laycock, Finance Innovation Lab


We launched STIR magazine, a quarterly print magazine of new economic ideas and original art in 2013. We publish international contributors on the co-operative movement, the global commons, solidarity economics and many other emerging political practices. Moving beyond traditional political commentary, we explore the inspiring and viable alternatives that represent a serious challenge to the current political crisis.

STIR magazine explores community ownership, co-operatives, post-growth economics, food sovereignty, alternative finance, law and social change, open data, cultural activism, peer-to-peer production, and the future of work.

We publish interviews with leading thinkers, illustrated how-to resources and seasonal recipes from local food activists.
