About the Conference

The 2017 ‘Building a New Economy for Australia’ is being held from 1-3 September 2017 in Brisbane.  Building on the inaugural 2016 conference held in Sydney, the 2017 gathering invites people to come together to share stories of success, address challenges and join the broader movement so we can continue working together to build a ‘new’ economic system.

Please join us for three days of fun-filled discussions, ‘unconference’ open working spaces, facilitated workshops, site-visits, clinics, training and learning opportunities – as well as academic presentations, debates, games and more!

The 2017 New Economy Conference will:

  • Bring together hundreds of people and organisations interested in moving beyond the current unjust and unsustainable economic system that currently dominates Australian society
  • Enable people to share, learn, listen, play, and work together to co-create a strong, vibrant economic system that’s fair for all Australians and cares for our precious natural environment
  • Launch a New Economy Network/Coalition for Australia
  • Launch powerful new collective strategies for creating positive social and economic change, to achieve long term, liveable economies that fit within the productive capacity of a healthy environment

The Conference will be a mix of planned sessions and open spaces (unconference space) for people to share, learn, listen, play and work together. Please see our Call for Proposals for details about how to submit a proposal or how to create an open space discussion. For more information email: neweconomy@earthlaws.org.au
