Latest STIR magazine focuses on community wealth building


“There is a growing range of local agents who are driving the community wealth building movement, with organisations developing co-operatives and economic alternatives, and a greater acknowledgement of the public pound – democratised money.” – Neil McInroy, Chief Executive, CLES.


STIR is a quarterly magazine published by Stir to Action focusing on new economic ideas and original art. It began life in 2013 and today publishes international contributors on the co-operative movement, the global commons, solidarity economics and many other emerging political practices. Moving beyond the traditional political commentary, it explores the inspiring and viable alternatives that represent a serious challenge to the current political crises.
