A National Gathering for the New Economy Movement
reRoute was a 3-day convergence in July 2013 that brought together a diverse new generation of practitioners and organizers from across the US and Canada to share strategies, tools, and stories about our work creating a solidarity economy from the ground up in our communities and on our campuses.
The stakes are high. Climate change is accelerating. Inequality is at historic levels. The financial industry continues to teeter on the brink of collapse, threatening the global economy. And all the while, our political system has proven incapable of effecting the structural transformations necessary to — quite literally — save the planet. The time is now for a new approach, a New Economy.
What would a green and fair world look like?
We don't have the answer yet but we do know that people all around the world are working on it...right now! And we can prove it.
We are proud to present the Global Transition to a New Economy — a digital map showcasing projects around the globe that are building the foundation for a just and sustainable economy.
Our map displays a myriad of projects, including cooperatives and social enterprises, local currencies, municipalities measuring wellbeing, community energy micro-generation, green skills training, and many more. Rooted in their locality and responding to local need, these projects vary greatly, highlighting how our common path to a green and fair world takes different forms in the Global North and Global South and within countries.
