Preston is a city and locality in the UK that has become an exemplar in developing new local strategies for economic and social regeneration famous. It is also one of the UK’s most economically deprived regions.
Through radically reforming how its anchor institutions procure services and the active promotion of local businesses, especially co-operatives, the city has engineered a major revival of local business activity.
BCCM and Queensland Social Enterprise Council (QSEC) have asked UK based co-operative historian, Tony Webster, to deliver the seminar The Preston Story: A Co-operative Blueprint for Local Economic and Social Regeneration, in Brisbane.
