By 2050, half the planet will be living on a knife edge. Communities cannot afford to wait for cash-strapped governments to address inequality and climate change. But how can they afford to take action themselves?
Keith Harrison-Broninski argues that cities, towns, neighbourhoods, and villages can and must become supercommunities — ecosystems able to sustain their natural, human, and industrial capitals. A supercommunity evolves from within to meet new challenges in times of crisis. It removes friction from collaboration so that local people become stakeholders and local organisations work together effectively. Powered by social trading, a supercommunity leverages progressive economic ideas and digital tools for local wellness.
Today, a tiny fraction of global investment is into social impact. Supercommunities will unlock the true potential of finance by offering investors worldwide the chance to become stakeholders in good things.
In this event, chaired by Professor Martin Parker (lead for the Inclusive Economy Initiative at the University of Bristol), Keith will discuss these ideas and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and join in the conversation. Everyone is welcome.
