Podcast: Revisiting the Community Paradigm
What would happen if we put power where it belonged, in our communities?
In The Community Paradigm, New Local’s Adam Lent and Jessica Studdert made a case for the radical redistribution of power – away from the state and the market – and towards people themselves. The report helped capture a community power movement that has been gaining momentum in places and public services ever since.
In this podcast, Adam and Jess introduce a brand new preface for the Paradigm – reflecting on new context created by the Covid pandemic, and the increased urgency to create sustainable, fairer services.
The podcast features an interview with the brilliant Mark Pepper – who is at the heart of the community-led regeneration of a Bristol estate.
