National Civil Society Strategy for a New Economy

The New Economy Network Australia (NENA) is inviting individuals, collectives and organisations from around Australia, to join us during 2020, to co-create Australia’s first National Civil Society Strategy and Action Plan for the New Economy.

By working together – across NENA Hubs, NENA events and online platforms – we aim to map out shared priorities and pathways, to help us transition to new economies that achieve ecological sustainability and social justice.

Who should participate?


Through our Geographic Hubs (Local and Regional) and Sectoral Hubs around Australia, NENA is governed by a diverse, interconnected network of people.  We are inviting people from across Australia, to contribute to the development of a shared strategy, by sharing their opinions about priorities, actions and existing successes that we can build on.  Everyone is encouraged to participate, including: First Nations Peoples and communities, non-Indigenous community groups and businesses, and people working in health, education, energy, housing, land management, tourism, food production, research, fine and creative arts, banking and finance, production, retail, management and more.
