Can the social economy save us?
What can Wales learn from the Basque experience?
Do you want to know more about how the social economy can benefit communities, but can’t make our full day conference? We are holding a live audience webinar with our very own Chris Bolton (Good Practice Exchange manager, @whatsthepont [open in new window]), in partnership with Wales Co-operative Centre. You are welcome to attend in person or tune in remotely through our live link.
Why this topic?
Recently Chris went to the Basque Country in Spain as part of his Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship [opens in new window]. What Chris shared through his series of blogs made the Good Practice Exchange team think ‘Wow! we need to share this with public services in Wales’. There’s so much that public services can take from and adapt to suit their own circumstances.
Here are the series of blogs from Chris’s experiences:
- Many Thanks, Panic Buttons and Dunning Kruger [opens in new window]
