“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has”

Margaret Mead. Cultural anthropologist

Just Communities

Just Tewkesbury is intended to be the first in a network of mutually supportive caring communities, with a shared focus on a just transition to a new economy, or perhaps an old one revisited.

The failed experiment that is corporate globalisation, the insanity of an addiction to infinite growth on a finite planet, and the presumption that we must all compete to live on it, is becoming all too apparent in terms of its inevitable end game.

It is our conviction that we must focus on cooperation in order to consciously rebuild commonwealth, by relocalising in self-sustaining, resilient, and tightly knit neighbourhoods.

We invite you to join with us, not simply by supporting JUST SHOP LOCAL, but also by considering some of the great opportunities to get actively involved so that we may all play our part.

Ultimately we are all connected, to each other, to our environment, and to our one shared beautiful little world. At some point, hopefully before it is too late, we will learn to live in harmony, with it, and with each other.

"The old economy of greed and domination is dying. A new economy of life and partnership is struggling to be born. The outcome is ours to choose"
