We were delighted to be invited at the REconomy day of the Transition Town Conference 2012. We were lucky to be able to present the inspiration for Restart and a call for action and collaboration to multiply the idea across the UK and beyond.
Here are the slides from our presentation, mostly pictures describing what happens during one of our Restart Parties:
The REconomy project is all about re-imagining the future of our local economies, creating new enterprises and livelihoods all the way from our dreams to the high streets of the future. It is about empowering us to recreate community and provide local ownership and accountability for businesses that embrace the environmental and social change we need to create.
We were inspired by a lot of the talks and the conversations that took place during the conference. As we wrote previously, we are inspired by the passion around food projects, and it was a wonderful coincidence to present about Restart in between talks by the inspiring founders of Incredible Edible and Growing Communities .
