THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE ON 13 MAY, 2013
This Transition Network and Resilience.org Webinar entitled Local Economic Blueprints: pioneering or pointless? discussed the recently published Totnes & District Local Economic Blueprint and whether it could serve as a useful model for other communities.
This innovative process, also being trialled in Hereford and in Brixton, looks at the potential of local economies, trying to quantify the potential economic benefits of taking a more localised approach to economic development. It shows that, in the case of Totnes, a shift of 10% of money spent on food could lead to £2.2 million of increased local economic activity, with the resultant growth in jobs, training and so on.
