How can we create community spaces that are relevant to local economic development? What is needed for these spaces to effectively support community business and be part of a movement for social change instead of gentrification?
Drawing on many of the most successful examples of community organising, this workshop offers practical steps to build bridges between entrepreneurship and development, and offers tools for the building of inclusive and meaningful communities.
