Community Business in 2030- Literature review

Over a number of months in 2018, Forum for the Future convened an inquiry into the future of community business, working with Goldsmith’s University, Steve Wyler, Cooperatives UK, Locality, the Plunkett Foundation and Social Enterprise UK. The
report of the inquiry can be accessed on the Power to Change website. As part of the work of the inquiry, the team from Goldsmith’s University undertook a thorough literature review relating to community business – looking at its history and its possible future. This paper shares the findings of their review.
