Join People’s Economy’s Changemaker Advisory Group 2023
About People’s Economy
People’s Economy works with communities in the UK facing economic injustice to reimagine, rebalance, and transform the economy.
We do this through direct support for changemakers, community education, and shaping the wider movement conditions for this work to be effective.
Within our work we define ‘changemakers’ as people who are from a community experiencing economic injustice and are working to achieve social, environmental or political change but might not yet be connecting their work to the economy or feel able to work on economic change.
We are setting up a Changemaker Advisory Group to help shape our community education on the economy and how to change it.
You don’t need to have done anything similar to this before or have a background in economics to join the group.
About the opportunity
We are looking for people to take up a paid opportunity to join the group who are ‘changemakers’, part of communities experiencing economic injustice.
We believe economic injustice looks like many things but includes:
- Struggling to meet basic needs and access resources to live a secure and decent life. This includes but isn’t limited to food, work, housing, utilities, and healthcare.
- Feeling disempowered and disconnected from networks, resources, and decision making. This means not having agency or control over important aspects of one’s life.
- Experiencing oppression as a result of your identity. This could be due to historically embedded and structural inequalities between groups.
