Against the backdrop of rapid economic, social and environmental change, a collective reflection is taking place on how to build more sustainable routes to share prosperity. Meanwhile, an increasing number and wide range of change-makers have already found ways to imagine and nurture a different economy by using new organising tactics, ways of connecting with people, and approaches to collaborative investment. The 25 case studies examined here show how the civic economy actively contributes to community resilience, everyday innovation and shared wealth. These trailblazers demonstrate why we need to improve the understanding and recognition of the role of civic entrepreneurship, enabling it to turn ideas into action and impact.
