Podcast: Revisiting the Community Paradigm

March 4, 2021  

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.
