BEGINS the event blurb: “The Scottish Government is to introduce legislation during this parliament to encourage community wealth building as Scotland’s core approach to economic development. A consultation on the proposed Bill has just concluded.
“The aim is to enact new – or amend existing – laws to accelerate this form of economic development in Scotland. What is community wealth building?
“How will it reform who takes decisions locally on what is spent – and on how, where and for what purpose? The Bill’s aim will be to bring economic transformation and to create empowered, resilient local communities. Therefore, change is coming which will affect current decision makers in the public sector and their other sectoral partners. Who will lead decision making in the future and how will communities be involved in that process? How will this affect your organisation?”
