What is community wealth building and how can we build it through our work in the food and farming sector?

Community wealth building offers an antidote to the current economic system which is destroying local economies, people and our planet. The food and farming sector has suffered at the hands of this system with supermarkets prioritising profit over fair pay for staff and farmers, lengthy supply chains limiting opportunities for local producers and healthy, sustainable food becoming the preserve of the middle classes who have larger incomes and more choice. The result: wealth leaking from local economies and communities having little influence over their local economy.

Join us for this Sustain and Sustainable Food Places webinar to explore what community wealth building is and how it can be used to build resilient local food economies that capture local wealth and use it to ensure everyone is able to access healthy, local, sustainable food.

Speakers include:

  • Frances Jones, CLES, the National Organisation for Local Economies
  • North Ayrshire Council, Community Wealth Building Strategy
  • Sara Gonzalez, Markets4People at University of Leeds
  • Adele Jarrett-Kerr, Soul Farm
