Gross Domestic Problem Book Launch

In early February NOW hosted a launch for an excellent new book entitled Gross Domestic Problem: The Politics Behind the World’s Most Powerful Number. The author of this book, Lorenzo Fioramonti, came to Totnes Book Shop to speak about the key themes of his book; namely the political background of Gross Domestic Product as a measurement of economic growth, the weaknesses of using GDP as a measure and the grassroots alternatives now beginning to take root.

Totnes does the Big Dig

The Big Dig was a national campaign to get people digging in community gardens across the UK 16 to 23 March. There were 6 locations participating in this celebration of gardening in/around Totnes during that week, as outlined below. The NOW team was involved in supporting with organising some of the gardens.
