Stroud Communiversity

Inspiring Self-Reliant Communities

Stroud Communiversity returns this year with a fresh feast of Stroud’s finest projects being showcased and explored over three packed days in May.

With Land, Food and Money at the heart of this recession, our response is an examination of practical, creative and innovative solutions to support the growth and development of a resilient local economy.

Stroud Communiversity is an initiative of Stroud Common Wealth Ltd in association with Transition Stroud.
