A pioneering new local economy for Brighton

This week sees the launch of my new project – a pioneering new vision for the local economy in Brighton. We’re calling it The Brightoneers – a hat-tip to the Rochdale Pioneers who founded the modern co-operative movement.

The Brightoneers isn’t just about co-operatives. It’s about the purpose of the local economy. It’s a project to use business to improve the wellbeing of all of society. That means giving us the opportunity to be happier, healthier, wiser, safer and have better relationships. Our intention is to build a highly collaborative and supportive network of local businesses that work both independently and together towards this aim. As we achieve this in Brighton, we want to create a model that other cities in the UK and the rest of the world can replicate, to increase the wellbeing of people everywhere.

You can check out the vision for The Brightoneers on the website and keep in touch through the meet-up group. We’re having a free launch party and networking event which you’re also invited to. Finally, if you’d like to get involved, please get in touch.
