Stir To Action


STIR - www.stirtoaction.com - is an online magazine that promotes the most inspiring and innovative community-led responses to the financial crisis, climate change and other contemporary challenges.

It features communities creating their own local currencies, raising community-shares to build solar power stations, establishing grassroots media initiatives, transforming derelict land into community food gardens, finding ways to manage resources collectively, and sharing their stories and ideas in a global network.
