Across the globe networks and movements are forming that are trying to better the way we provide for people and planet. We are calling international groups and individuals together to understand how and why this change is happening; to develop these networks, and to collaboratively up-skill and inform the practitioners within them. This event is a space to re-connect to your work's purpose, widen your understanding of what is happening globally and collectively resource each other to amplify our effect. Find out more by watching our short video below!

This week will offer young people from across Europe and beyond the opportunity to collaboratively explore developments at the cutting edge of the learning and practice of economics. It will provide a space for us to set the agenda, self-organise into a vibrant and self-governing learning community and dive deep into imagining new ways of organising our economies and communities. We anticipate this will be a significant rallying point for the mobilisation and empowerment of the new generation who are blazing innovative trails. It will be a space in which new partnerships will be developed, networks created and initiatives born.

This event aims to bring together those young people who are currently thinking and working in these new ways. We are inviting those from the corners of the world where convention is being broken.

Join us, and bring the world’s attention to the fact that together we are the Generation of the New Economy.
