In this week’s roundup we’re exploring models of sustainability: from growing kelp to a farm that combines land-trusts, CSA’s, and community currency in one place. Plus: a toolkit for building equitable cities.
In this week’s roundup: Funding the new economy, freedom cities, and the relationship of free trade in social solidarity economies.
Plus: We are very excited to partner with The Media Consortium and The Laura Flanders Show to launch the New Economies Reporting Project, providing journalists with resources and support to amplify the new economy story. Check out our fellows here!
Two years ago, a dear friend asked if I'd submit my name for consideration for New Economy Coalition’s board. I jumped at the chance because I believed in NEC’s power to usher in a new economic way forward.
NEC is excited to announce a new partnership withThe Media Consortium(TMC)andThe Laura Flanders Show. Together, we are coordinating the New Economies Reporting Project, an effort to support journalists who are interested in covering new economy stories in the US and Canada.
In last week’s roundup, we talked about some of the exciting events NEC is a part of this coming week. We are highlighting systemic solutions to the environmental crisis at The People’s Climate Movement (PCM) as well as participating in The Majority’s “Beyond the Moment” campaign with the Movement for Black Lives for May Day mass mobilizations - find an event near you with this map.
