The compendium for the civic economy

NESTA (the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts) has joined forces with CABE and design practice 00:/ to publish this compendium which looks at the potential of the civic economy, or the combining of the spirit of entrepreneurship with the aspiration of civic renewal. The book, which is freely available online, includes 25 case studies which demonstrate how urban and rural communities are using new organising tactics, ways of connecting with people, and approaches to collaborative investment.
