Preston Model: Going Local 5pm Tue 21 July

Julian Manley outlines how a cooperative city benefits by focus on the spend of anchor institutions and promoting local enterprises.

Julian worked with Cllr Matthew Brown, Leader of Preston City Council, and other stakeholders since 2012 in developing the ‘Preston Model’.
He will describe how Preston is going local / regenerating by keeping wealth created in the city. The Preston Model engenders democracy and participation – building on community wealth building work in USA. The idea is to ignite ideas that work for people in different places.

The breakout discussions will generate practical ideas for the application of these ideas to real life economic, social and climate challenges facing communities in Scotland.
