Online Meetings

Every Saturday members meet virtually to have a chat about a particular topic of interest to them, including things like environmental topics, co-operative and social justice movements and how DFC policy reflects these issues. Everyone is welcome!

Community Wealth Building - continued 23/01/21

Last week we had a great discussion with our guests Joe Guinan and Martin O’Neill, the co-authors of Community Wealth Building

The conversation with Martin and Joe was very rich and it generated a lot of links to different readings around the topic. Rather than launch into a new topic we thought it might be useful if our next meeting continued the CWB discussion this coming Saturday. For instance we can think more locally about how these ideas might be applied in Dublin or throughout Ireland. So take your pick of readings below (or anything else you might find online about the topic) and we’ll see you on Saturday at 4.30!

Join the Discussion

Contact by Friday evening if you’d like to be added to the mailing list. Members discuss topics they suggest themselves each week, and you don’t need to be familiar with the topic to join in. The discussion is a great place to meet other members, especially at a time when we can’t meet in person.
