Is System Change Possible? Long-Term Strategies

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The new economy is rich in experiments and examples, but can these various efforts actually build up to challenge, displace, and ultimately replace our current economic system? Our three panelists will explore ambitious yet pragmatic strategies over the long term for our organizing, activism, and institutional development. Clear, articulated theories of change can better guide the movement to boldly transform corporate capitalism and create a just and sustainable future.
