Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas: Event 2

A year of events to introduce inspiring community business ideas from
elsewhere that could be adapted in Hastings. Julia Hilton writes.

Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas: Event 2 is coming to Hastings on 24 October. Come and hear great speakers and the inspiring ideas they’ve contributed to thriving communities elsewhere. This time there is a big emphasis on the idea of a circular economy with less waste and shared resources like the Library of Things and the Onion Collective, who are exploring bio-recycling waste into positive products. We will also hear from the Bevy community pub and Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Town movement, talking about the power of the imagination.

Ideas collected from previous meetings

Ideas collected from Common Treasury Aprll 2019

Last week our Taking it Forward event heard how speakers from the first Common Treasury have inspired the first Fun Palace to take place in Hastings on 5 October at Ore Community Centre, as well as guerilla gardeners popping up all over the town. West Marina are working on a neighbourhood plan, inspired by hearing the determination of Hazel Tilley from Granby4Streets to reclaim their streets for the community, and Bob Johnston is working on creating The Makings, a collaborative space for local designers and makers to share ideas as well as tools.

We can’t wait to hear what great ideas come out of the next event! Book your free place at Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas Event 2.
