Devon New Economy Seminar


The Old Deanery, The Cloisters, Cathedral Cl, Exeter EX1 1HS GoogleMap

I am convening a working group which is looking at how best to pursue alternative economic models across Devon. We are lucky to have on it Stewart Wallis ex Director of the New Economics foundation, who is now living in North Devon. 

We are running a short seminar which you might be interested in, for details see below.

Devon New Economy Seminar - What would a New Economic System look like and how to make it happen?

This will be an interactive seminar led by Stewart Wallis, previously Director of the New Economics Foundation. Issues to be explored will include:

  • Why we need a new Economic System.
  • How economic system change has happened before and key lessons.
  • Goals, Values and Principles for the New Economy.
  • How might it operate?
  • How to make it happen?
  • Our role in Devon?

This seminar is one outcome of the New Economy workshop held in Exeter Community Centre on Sat 16th April this year, and the starting point for trying to create a new economy in Devon.

The venue is the Great Hall at the Old Deanery, beside Exeter Cathedral, EX1 1HS.

Coffee and tea will be available from 10am, for a prompt 10.30am start. Please bring your own packed lunch (drinks will be provided).

We also request that you read the 2 documents: Principles for a new economy & What Unites us? Building a Common Agenda before the seminar, so that we all have the same insights into this topic.

Please reply to Devon Development Education to book a place, (attn Sue Errington).

If you cannot attend but would like to join a mailing list for the Devon New Economy Group, please let me know.
