Abstract

Local Alchemy is an innovative initiative, developed jointly by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) and the East Midlands Development Agency (emda). It provides a practical framework for analysing and encouraging the recirculation of local spending within local economies, and for promoting enterprise and community-led regeneration that is also socially and environmentally sustainable. It is particularly concerned to reduce dependence on mainstream ‘top-down’ approaches to
regeneration and to challenge institutions and agencies to think differently about communities experiencing economic disadvantage.
