The community wealth building movement is beginning to transform ownership and control of local economies, delivering real benefits to people and place. This session is for anyone (inside or outside the Labour Party) interested in exploring where next for a radical community wealth building agenda. The participatory session will focus on four areas - data and digital infrastructures, 21st century commoning, transforming land use, and reparative strategies to link local wealth-building with global justice - that can deepen and extend the community wealth building agenda.
