New Economies Reporting Project

Aaron Tanaka of NEC member Boston Ujima Project.

The biggest news story right now is one that is not being reported: the emergence of a New Economy that “meets human needs, enhances the quality of life and allows us to live in balance with nature.” Building on the history of solidarity economy organizing, the social venture movement, the environmental movement, and the many movements for racial and economic justice, the New Economy movement envisions a just transition to a better and stronger social, cultural and economic system.

New Economy Coalition is s supporting reporters in telling that story through the New Economies: A Reporter Training Project. This project is a collaboration with The Media Consortium and The Laura Flanders Show and is supported in part by the Park Foundation.
