Stir to Action is a Bridport and Bristol-based organisation, supporting the New Economy through educational programmes, our UnFound technology accelerator, local economic development, and our quarterly magazine.
From October 2018 to July 2019, Stir To Action are hosting a New Economy programme of 30 workshops, 3 residentials, mentoring, and live crowdfunding events. The programme will be delivered in Bristol, Oxford, and London.
We’ve crowdfunded the initial costs to design and launch the programme, with over 200 backers and 23 Founding Supporters — organisations such as ethical banks, local authorities, thinktanks, crowdfunding platforms, co-operatives, and social enterprises.

Through this programme we are planning on training 1000 people, and we’re looking for a new part-time team member to lead on workshop sales, marketing to our magazine readers, our founding partners and their customers, local authorities, trade unions, NGOs, and local community groups.
