Invitation to a Consultation: Progress on Building the New Economy in Devon


The Quaker Meeting House in Exeter, Wynards, Magdalen St, EX2 4HU GoogleMap

Purpose of Consultation

There will be a presentation of the findings from the scoping study that is being carried out over the summer. The study has been commissioned by the Devon New Economy Initiative, of which the purpose statement is here attached.

Gill Westcott and Isabel Carlisle will report back on innovation in Devon's current economy, present case studies of new economy interventions elsewhere and open up a discussion about the most effective next steps in terms of creating a new organisation. The intent of a new organisation is to support the growth of a more resilient, equitable and regenerative economic strategy for Devon as well as nurture projects on the ground. We invite you to share your ideas, give us feedback and help us shape the next phase. What do you need, and what does Devon need?

There will be food and drink provided.   Doors open at 5pm, the presentation will start at 5.15 pm. We will break for refreshments at 7.00 pm then continue to chat informally over food and drink. 

Please let us know if you intend to come since that will help us in organising the event and also in planning the refreshments.
