About the New Economy Speaker Series:

If you have ever wondered what exactly the “new economy” is, or you want to engage in some structured discussion with your peers and leaders of the movement, this series is built for you.

“Building the New Economy” will provide a conceptual grounding for the flourishing New Economy movement, covering the most important themes and issues. We are taking an experimental approach to our lunch series. Don’t come expecting a lecture. For 15 -20 minutes, each invited speaker will discuss the issue at hand (from economic growth to alternative consumption models) and the remaining time will be opened up for a facilitated conversation with 20 of your peers and colleagues.
