STIR: Co-ops. Community. Commons.
STIR started as an online magazine and has now launched as a quarterly print magazine that features articles and interviews on the international co-operative movement, the emergence of the commons and collaborative networks, and other community-orientated alternatives in technology, agriculture, food, sports, energy, education and other important aspects of our lives.
We have opened our subscription service with GoCardless for the print edition and it’s £16 for four issues including P&P, and you can subscribe by clicking here.
We are a reader-supported magazine (with no external funding) so please consider supporting our magazine with an annual subscription.
In 2012 we published a crowdfunded book of alternatives, raising over £5000 from 135 crowdfunders. STIR Vol.1 involved over 160 people who edited, designed, authored, illustrated and funded the collection of articles and interviews.
What people think about STIR:
“STIR has now become a print-based magazine, which is a sign of its success in reaching more people. STIR is one of the few magazines that captures the emerging sensibilities of commoners and commons activism, so it is well worth your support.” — David Bollier
“Most publications with a purpose are shaped by the moment in which they were first dreamed up: in this case, I’d say, the moment of Transition Towns and Occupy.” — Dougald Hine
“Alongside New Internationalist, STIR is turning into the closest thing we have to a radical co-operativist magazine in the UK.” — Sion Whellans, Calvert Print Co-operative
“It fills a gap for me between activist news of Red Pepper and rich analyses of the New Left Review and I really appreciate the activist oriented essays.” — Dr.Malcolm Maclean, University of Gloucester
