Principles met

  • We will promote community-based approaches to economic development that focus on supporting the creation of jobs, social enterprises and other businesses and providing an environment for co-operative and mutual enterprises to thrive.

Strengthening the co-operative partnership in Preston between citizens, communities, enterprises and the Council is central to Preston’s Community Wealth Building strategy, CWB 2.0. In the last 12 months this partnership has continued to grow. This case study describes a number of projects in which the Council is working with Climate Action Preston and a community film and music project to address the climate emergency.

In September 2021 the National Lottery launched the Together for Our Planet fund to encourage community action to raise awareness about the climate emergency. The Council encouraged and supported groups to bid for funding and two projects were successful.
