The REconomy Project is part of the Transition Network, a global grassroots movement of communities seeking to strengthen their resilience to problems including climate change, rising energy prices, economic uncertainty and inequality.
The REconomy Project works with communities to take on the exciting challenge of transforming their economic destinies – moving away from the doomed ‘business as usual’ model and towards something that helps build resilience rather than economic growth at any cost. Examples of REconomy initiatives include community owned energy companies, food businesses, local currency projects, setting up ‘buy local campaigns, or working with local businesses in some other way.

- Inspiring enterprises: new Transition-oriented enterprises and livelihoods
- Economic enablers: projects that provide support or infrastructure for new or existing businesses
