In this one-hour workshop, CLES will train activists in strategies to take back control of our places, and use local power to create social, economic, and environmental wealth for all. Using Brighton as an example, activists will work in teams to build community wealth, deepen democracy for local residents, and navigate the many scenarios facing local change-makers.
