Associate Professor Dr Jenny Cameron and colleagues have published an article titled “Cultivating a Community Economy: Tools for a More Livable World”. In this article, the focus is on livable, sustainable and just ways forward for development by:
identifying, gathering, and amplifying ethical economic practices that already exist—and that are prescient of “the world we want to live in.” (Gibson-Graham et al., 2017 p. 2)
The article is free to access online here. It’s worth a read for all our keen geographers!
