The New Economy Coalition (NEC) is a network of organizations imagining and building a future where people, communities, and ecosystems thrive. Together, we are creating deep change in our economy and politics—placing power in the hands of people and uprooting legacies of harm—so that a fundamentally new system can take root.
Our network advances change in three main ways:
- We convene and connect leaders to tackle common challenges in their work to build a new economy.
- We amplify stories, tools, and analysis, weaving a collective new economy narrative that can build shared identity, shift culture and policy, and promote a clear vision of the next system.
- We lift up the work of communities on the frontlines of interrelated economic and ecological crises who are organizing for transformative change, through right relationships and direct support.
CommonBound is NEC's biannual convening of movement leaders, visionaries, and activists. The 2014 and 2016 conferences took place in Boston and Buffalo, NY respectively. We are thrilled to have CommonBound 2018 co-hosted with NEC member Solidarity Economy St. Louis.
