Welcome to Agora

Agora recognises that human societies in the twenty first century face particular challenges. We need to develop ways of life that are not only just in terms of human relationships and properly concern our well-being, but which are also much more sensitive to our impact on the earth and its ecosystems.

Agora works to promote active citizenship through social innovation, developing initiatives that, through their very existence, encourage reflection on primary areas of culture such as economies and exchange, communities and governance, appropriate technologies, and beliefs and values.

News from our AGM held on November 19th 2018

Members decided at the annual meeting this year to wind up the charity. After sixteen years of work covering an enormous range of courses, articles, projects and enterprises, at least one of which has become internationally famous, the trustees proposed that the charity be dissolved.

Members present at the meeting recalled their involvement with the charity from the earliest days of our ‘In Search of Vision’ conversations through to our recent Community Food Centre innovations and spoke warmly of their appreciation of the work that had been done. Others, who could not attend, wrote similar messages of support.

Thank you to all have been involved in whatever way – it has been an exciting and invigorating journey!
