Welcome to Kommuniti HQ
Building community capacity can be very subjective and there is definitely no one size fits all, and who would ever want that, but as Einstein once said..... "The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting a different result".
Too many people are facing rising poverty, inequality, and financial insecurity while the powerful few get wealthier.
Although rivers of wealth flow through local places, traditional economic development, focused on investment diverts it, with profits and dividends often being extracted by sophisticated investors.
Community Wealth Building is an alternative; it is a collaborative approach that builds locally controlled economies that put communities first.
Watch this video from our Collaborative partners at CLES and if it resonates with you, then you are in the right place, heading in the same direction with many of us, Locally, Nationally and Internationally.
Economic development professionals and city mayors are working in partnership with foundations, anchor institutions, unions, community organisations, progressive business networks, workers, and community residents.
What’s emerging is a systems approach to creating an inclusive, sustainable economy where all can thrive.
The work is place-based, fed by the power of anchor institutions, and built on locally rooted and broadly held ownership. It’s about Building Community Wealth and Well-being.

Founder and Managing Director
Kommuniti has many references and resources that it draws from and collaborates with many organisations with the same aim. We are aligned with the UN Sustainable Goals and in particular #SDG11 Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Governance - we use circles of sociocracy to make decisions by consent as equals and not the consensus of a vociferous few. We elect officers to the governance work of our circles and sub-circles.
