One Earth and CCEDNet Publish Voices of New Economies

June 19, 2015

How do we define ‘new economies’?

What are the edges and contours of emerging ideas that put people, place and planet first?

One Earth and the Canadian Community Economic Development Network joined forces to crowdsource a range of perspectives on new economies. What began as a blog series has now been assembled into a compendium. 

Voices of New Economies is inspired by all those who are rising up to shape new economic systems, recognizing that our current practices are no longer serving us well – ecologically, socially and even financially. The collection gives voice to innovative leaders who are finding different paths forward.

Thanks to The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation for supporting this series and report as part of Cities for People.
