A few weeks back, we announced registration for our biennial conference CommonBound, happening June 22-24 in St.Louis, Missouri. CommonBound is a conference designed by and for the new economy movement, so we’re inviting our members and fellow activists from across the U.S. and Canada to fill the program with the conversations our flawed economy—and the people determined to build a new one—need most.
Workshops will range from hands-on trainings, to panels of leading community innovators, academics and researchers, to case studies from movement frontlines. We’re looking for presenters of all backgrounds and educational levels to share their stories, skills and big ideas for building an economy that puts people and planet first. Submit your workshop proposals today.
NEC’s 200+ member organizations and broad network of allies are building some of the most visionary alternatives to our current system today, pushing for policies and institutions that change the economy’s rules, and building the popular pressure to make them happen.
CommonBound 2018: Owning Our Power, NEC's biennial national conference, will be focused on this question of “How?” and we want you to chart a path forward with us. Register today to join us in St. Louis, MO, June 22-24.
