A growing stream of people visit Stroud to learn from an increasing range of innovative projects such as Stroud Community Agriculture and Springhill Co-Housing. These projects have become inspiring ‘thought leaders’ provoking people to develop questions to further their own exciting projects. Visitors want to share what they are doing, their learning and their questions.
…how a community can make a tangible difference in its affairs and take responsibility for its own present and future needs…
Stroud Communiversity is our response. We welcome people similarly engaged from all over the country to build a community of practice. Learning is through practical talks, discussions, workshops and visits to local projects, with the opportunity to develop personal projects and visions through action learning. The programme always allows for time to reflect on the day as well as some Open Space for networking and exploring common questions.
Our aim is to build a community of practice for sustainable livelihoods and a local living economy. We endeavour to achieve one annual three day event, regular single day workshops and occasional evening seminars and continue to develop further national and international partnerships.
