Free places on New Economy training programme

Stir to Action and their partners are offering free workshop places on their upcoming New Economy training programme.


Through Power to Change they are supporting minoritised ethnic communities, young adults (18-35) and those living in areas of deprivation, and there are free places also available for anyone working in sustainable food and farming.

The training programme, running from April to June 2022, is focussed on building community power and local democracy, and features workshops on:

  • Creating Engaging Workshops
  • Sociocracy and Better Decision Making
  • Community Partnerships
  • Worker Co-Ops
  • Democratising the High Street
  • Community Ownership
  • and much more

You can see the full programme with times and dates on the Stir to Action website, as well as apply for your free places.

There are a number of areas of Southwark that are measured as highly deprived, and you can find more details on our Indices of Deprivation map.
