The Civic Economy

From Beyond Social


In 2011 I published the book 'compendium for the civic economy' in which I explain how the 'civic economy' represents another approach to entrepreneurship rooted in value creation, resilience and social entrepreneurship. I am interested in projects which make use of new organisational tactics, new ways of connecting and new approaches toward collaborative investments. I am convinced that the 'civic economy' is a real, vital and growing component of many local economies, actively contributing to community resilience, everyday innovation and shared prosperity. At the WdKA symposium 'Redesigning Business'(Rotterdam, November 20 2014) I described a range of international projects with their potentials and challenges.
