People Power Forum: empowering the grassroots

Event Date: 25 October 2019

Inclusive Economy Liverpool is teaming up with the Peoples Powerhouse CIC and Atlantic Youth Creative Hub to host People Power Forum at the Black-E on the morning of Friday 25th October.

A series of lightning talks on issues around people power and grassroots growth, this is an opportunity to hear from local leaders on issues concerning you.

Starting at 9.30am and going through until 1pm (with a break for coffee), there will be a chance to hear ten short talks on different aspects of the social economy – from Universal Basic Income to crowdfunding, from Community Wealth Building to democratising manufacturing.

Speakers include:

  • Deborah Aydon of The People’s Pool: a vision for a new lido for the City Region, which she’s now working with partners to turn into a reality.
  • Janette Williamson from Wirral Council, where she is leading on Community Wealth Building and setting up a new bank.
  • Hannah Forbes from The Funding Crowd, a Liverpool-based crowdfunding consultancy helping businesses raise funding on sites such as Crowdcube, Seedrs and Kickstarter.
  • And more
