Citizen-Led Innovation for a New Economy
by Alison Mathie (Editor)

This new book showcases creative citizens changing their communities for the better

· Citizen-led Innovation for a New Economy edited by Alison Mathie of Coady International Institute and John Gaventa of the Institute of Development Studies (UK).
· Book features 11 case studies from ethnically diverse settings in Canada and the United States.

Citizen-led Innovation for a New Economy is a collection of case studies featured at a June 2013 conference in Antigonish hosted by the StFX Extension Department and Coady Institute.

“These are very inspiring stories,” said Dr. June Webber, director of Coady Institute and vice-president of StFX. “They cut across urban and rural initiatives in First Nation, Inuit, Latino, African American and other mixed communities. They also serve as a platform for ongoing discussion for citizen-led social innovation. Our hope is that this collection will spark creative thinking in communities that are grappling with their own issues around fairness, economic justice and environmental sustainability.”
