Jenny Cameron of Community Economies Research Network (CERN) shared the following news:
A small group have been working on the Community Economies Website – it’s a labour of love done in our spare time.
This website serves a number of functions and one of these is to share
news and information about community economies activity. To do this the
latest news is featured on the home page (see https://www.communityeconomies.org/) and then all news items are in the
News section (see https://www.communityeconomies.org/news).
We’re still fine-tuning a few things (e.g. making it clear in the News
section that there is more than what you see and that you need to click
on each story to read the full item; and we’re working on the images
that go with each story).
To test our capacity to run regular news items we’ve focused on the
activities of the core members of the Community Economies Institute
(these are the people listed on the People page of the website).
But we’re now ready to run more news items (ideally a new story each
week), and we’d like to include news about the community economies
activity of CERN members. This might be information about teaching
community economies, an update on a community economies research
project, a community economies workshop or opening. If you look at the
News section you’ll get an idea about the types of activities that are
All you need to do is email email@example.com with
some brief information (and perhaps a link to a website) and an image
idea (could be a photo or you’ll see we sometimes grab an image from a
document). Jenny will put the story together and run it by you before
adding it to the Home page.
Look forward to hearing from CERN members and sharing more information
about what we’re all “up to”.
