WORKSHOP | Building Resilient Businesses and Local Living Economies

We will be attending a workshop, The LOCAL Opportunity: Building Resilient Businesses and Local Living Economies, with Michael Shuman and presented by the Brisbane Transition Hub.

Michael Shuman is a noted economist, attorney, author, entrepreneur and Vice President of the Training & Development Corporation. He is widely recognised for his research into the economic advantages of small-scale businesses in an era of globalisation as well as the often over-looked benefits of building local economies. Michael has authored, co-authored and edited seven books, including The Small Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses are Beating the Global Competition, and Going Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in the Global Age.

If you are interested in positive and viable ways to build stronger businesses and communities in the changing economic, environmental and global context, then this workshop is for you. Learn more about:

  • The value of small business to sustainable economies
  • The importance of local businesses
  • Options for investment in local or green businesses and community projects
  • Invigorating local economic vitality
  • Ways to bring community development and new business creation together
  • Building local living economies

The workshop is on 21 June 2009, 09:30 to 16:30, at Souths Leagues Club, West End. More information at the Brisbane Transition Hub website.
