Vicki Parkes from the Bellingen/Nambucca Affordable Housing Steering Committee has forwarded the following information to the Chamber to gauge the interest here in Bellingen for a trial of this model.
Creating an economy that is healthy, fair, participatory, inclusive and sustainable is quite within our grasp as a community. This ‘new economy’ adopts a new paradigm in taxation, banking and land use/ownership. It fosters cooperatives instead of share ownership. This new economy can be prototyped as a grassroots economic project and can then be translated to the national and global economy.
In a talk by Gavin Tang we shall explore what these new practices and paradigms are and how they can really work as a grassroots project.
Come and help make Bellingen the pioneering town in this potentially world-changing project.
When: Thursday, 23rd November, 7PM
Where: The Uniting Church
