Community Business in 2030

As a result of conversations last year with Power to Change and others who are leading in this space,  embarked upon a project to explore what a future healthy, vibrant and sustainable community enterprise movement might look like in 2030 – a vision created with, and for, entrepreneurial communities. 

This inquiry seeks to answer the question: how could community business contribute to a thriving economy and civil society? It tells us that community businesses feel excited for their future, and believe they are part of a different, more inclusive approach to running local economies. It does not shy away from the real pressures and changes affecting our communities, but boldly articulates how community businesses can play a bigger role in shaping local communities and putting power back in their hands. The enterprises featured exhibit the variety and vibrancy of the organisations pointing us towards a possible future. To realise this future, sketched out below is a map to get us to where community businesses want to be, around which all those who support and believe in community business can coalesce
