Working Groups

NENA Working Groups

At the conclusion of the 2016 New Economy Conference, more than a dozen Working Groups were created to work towards two main goals:

(i) to work together to create sessions, site visits and other activities for the 2017 New Economy Conference, and
(ii) to work on projects that will build the New Economy Network for Australia, over the long term.

In the lead up to the 2017 Conference, Working Groups – which have members across Australia – are working together on a fortnightly or monthly basis, via skype and Loomio, to progress discussions and projects. People are welcome to join existing working groups at any time, or propose new working groups.  Please just get in touch: neweconomy@earthlaws.org.au

The current Working Groups are listed below.  Please click on the links to read about each working group. More information about each group will be available in April/May:

Background information

At the conclusion of the ‘Building the New Economy’ Conference in Sydney in August 2016, the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) offered to organize a New Economy Conference for 2017, to ensure a ‘space’ was held for further discussions about building a new economy network for Australia. AELA now acts as a ‘hub’ that facilitates and connects NENA working groups.

The Working Groups have been created to work towards two main goals: (i) to work together to create sessions, site visits and other projects for the 2017 Conference, and (ii) to work on projects that will contribute towards building NENA over the long term. In the lead up to the 2017 Conference, Working Groups – which have members across Australia – are working together on a fortnightly or monthly basis, via skype and Loomio, to progress discussions and projects.
