The REconomy Project Day at the Transition Conference will explore the conference theme of "Building Resilience in Extraordinary Times" through an economic and entrepreneurial lens.

The full programme can be viewed here.

This is a day where you can both learn and shape Transition economic thinking. Through mapping, scaling and connecting some disparate innovations and trailblazer enterprises, we'll make an audacious attempt to bring to life an enthralling vision of a truly credible alternative to our current economic system.

The day is for doers and will be a mix of "how to" sessions on areas such as setting up anything from energy and food companies to incubators and local currencies. 

There will be some tool kit building workshops, as well as idea-sharing and a sprinkling of inspirational stories from pioneers and thinkers in new economics.

Who should attend? We expect the event to be full of people who are at different stages – you may be looking for ideas and inspiration, be on the brink of setting up a new enterprise or needing ways to lead the economic transition in your community. Perhaps you're already well down the road and have experiences to pass on.

We encourage you to bring questions that need answering, especially around practical action and we in the REconomy team have set ourselves the challenge of ensuring all your questions are answered, by us or other attendees.

How will we do this? It would be impossible to do directly in a traditional, centrally organised top-down plenary-type event. So we intend to provide a space to apply the vastly more powerful new economics models of peer to peer sharing, collaboration, community, cooperation, openness and giving.  So this starts with a request for your help…

We aim to build relationships and community collaborators prior to, during and after the event.  So you need to let us know which topics you’d like to see on the agenda, sessions that you can offer to run or that you’d like to participate in. What kinds of problems might you bring, or what solutions might you be offering? What do you think of the ideas that others are offering for the day? Who would you most like to hear from? What would make the day most useful for you?

DoorstepBakeryThe REconomy Project builds on the growing body of work and momentum around 3 key areas - setting up social enterprises, engaging existing businesses and leading the economic transition in your community.

REconomy project has been a collaboration of hundreds of Transitioners who have contributed so far. The official launch of the REconomy Project will be at the end of the day and we invite you to join us in celebrating (in the bar!). Check out the website, particularly the "about" and the "what's a Transition social enterprise" pages, and like us on facebook to be kept up to date.

Ticket price includes a sandwich lunch and refreshments.
