What is the New Economy Programme?

We talk about making 'communities stronger' and creating a ‘fairer economy.’ But these approaches are still struggling to significantly impact our society and economy — 80% of the UK’s freelancers are living in poverty, Black African women earn 19.6% less than White British Men, 27 pubs are closing every week as part of a wider decline in community assets, and local authority cuts are disproportionately affecting women and communities of colour across the UK. 

To help transform our economy over the last few years, Stir to Action has organised national workshop programmes and accelerators to support communities to build a new economy that works for everyone. Now we’ve launched a multi-year programme of new economy workshops, residentials, mentoring, and live crowdfunding in Bristol, London, and Oxford.

What to expect?

With 30 workshops and 3 residentials on offer, participants will discover new economic tools and models, receive training from facilitators with decades of experience, access project support from our mentoring network, and have the opportunity to participate in our live crowdfunding events. 

The workshops will get you started with worker co-operatives, explore how community wealth building approaches could benefit your local economy, deepen your understanding of racial justice and economic history, see the economy from a gender perspective, and enable you to develop your communication strategy for a new project, campaign, or organisation.

What people say about our workshops

"Stir to Action’s Community Wealth Building workshop gave me brilliant insight into this emerging field of practice. I have taken forward the thinking in my own work, and have since seen it being uptaken by others also. Once again Stir To Action is at the forefront, bringing new ideas to action." —Hannah Gardiner, Shared Assets. 

“I attended a Stir to Action workshop about reframing campaigns and social impact stories. It was a useful day of talks, brainstorming, skills sharing and networking, and I met a variety of people of difference experience levels from the third sector and civil society organisations. I went away with many new ideas for campaigns I'm working on, and would definitely attend a Stir to Action workshop again.” — Sophie Yates, Positive Money and What Women Want 2.0
