From the Transition Network:
"Belief in external experts and our dependence on their telling us what to do next has become commonplace. However, much of what we need is around us. We need ways to unlock the knowledge and ideas of our community"
From "[[Rebuilding the Foodshed]]" by Philip Ackerman Leist (Chesea Green, 2012):
From "The New Economy in 20 Enterprises" report:
A social enterprise is "a financially viable trading entity that fulfils a real community need, delivers [[community benefit|social benefits]] and has beneficial, or at least neutral, environmental impacts."
