Economy and enterprise
About this theme
This theme covers all aspects of the economy, including its development and regulation, wealth and job creation, production and consumption, commerce, enterprise, financial services and industry. It is one of the eight universal themes which form our grantmaking framework and allow us to address every aspect of society. Fellows’ stories
I believe local currencies, like the system in Marica, can be a powerful business development model for towns and villages in the UK, especially those losing out to online sales or nearby large cities. They can support community wealth building and circular economy initiatives and give power back to communities when making spending decisions.
