Economics Education Hub

About the Hub

The Objectives of NENA’s Economics Education Hub are to:

  • Enable NENA members around Australia to meet via the internet, or in person, for discussions about Education in the New Economy and to provide mutual support to each other and our projects
  • Provide an avenue for members of the Hub to share information, resources and news from the education space
  • Enable members to make time and space to develop collaborative projects where appropriate
  • Provide information about Education in the New Economy to the broader NENA network via the website, social media and webinars
  • Provide input about education for the new economy, into the NENA Annual Strategy
  • Work with other NENA Hubs to share ideas, collaborate and develop initiatives that support the New Economy

Partner Organisations

We are connected to the movement for Rethinking Economics in Australia and affiliated with Economic Reform Australia.
