This week we’re talking about a people-powered currency in Puerto Rico, our Rural Electric Cooperative Toolkit, a new worker cooperative start-up guide, and workers seizing the machine of Capital to demand renewable energy jobs. Plus, jobs and events from across the new economy!
Early in March, NEC staff met with volunteer coordinators at the Grant Street Neighborhood Center, a former library that now hosts PUSH Buffalo’s offices along with an array of after-school and community programming.
The Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) is a member of NEC because we believe in building a more just and sustainable economy. It’s what we’ve been doing in eastern Kentucky for 40 years.
CommonBound will be a workshop-heavy conference organized around some core thematic tracks. Each track will be curated by a volunteer planning committee and framed around a challenge or opportunity standing between us and a just, sustainable, and democratic economy.
Network Gatherings are day-long gatherings that will be held on the first day (Friday, July 8) of CommonBound. They are proposed and organized by volunteers who want to bring a group of 20-100 people together to increase the capacity of our movements.
