Mapping the New Economy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Panelists will map out the emerging next system by exploring the landscape of organizations and networks that comprise the new economy and engage with the audience about gaps, obstacles, common values and principles and how to build on one another’s efforts and collaboratively work towards a more capable, credible, and coherent movement for systemic change. The Real Economy Lab, the Solidarity Economy Network and others have advanced significant work in this area surveying the landscape, identifying the linkages and seeking to provide interactive platforms where the cumulative knowledge, aims, and resources of our movements can be drawn together in order to seek common ground and drive coordinated action. 
This workshop will include presentations of this mapping work to date and a discussion of the results, ongoing challenges and what tools, data, or support might be missing from the system we all work in.
