πŸ’₯ What’s the Big Deal: 

This brief explores four innovative models that aim to expand asset ownership and community wealth building for individuals and institutions, especially those who have been historically excluded or marginalized by the mainstream economy. 🀝 models are community land trusts, limited equity cooperatives, social enterprises, and community development financial institutions. The brief describes how these models work, what benefits they offer, and what challenges they face. πŸš€ brief also provides examples of successful projects that use these models in different contexts and sectors.🌳 The brief argues that these models can help create more inclusive and sustainable economic development, and empower people and communities to shape their own destiny.
