Description

There has never been a greater need for a new economy and the New Economics Foundation is determined to do all it can to help build it.

That is why NEF is relaunching on Tuesday 11 October 2016 from 11am to 4.15pm at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre on London’s South Bank, with a new statement of our mission and a new way of working.

We should be delighted if you could join us for a day of discussion and debate, campaigning and community-building, so that together we can start to create a fairer, inclusive, more sustainable economynot at some vague point in the future, but here and now.

We know already that we will be joined by an amazing line up of campaigners, economists, journalists, community leaders and politicians.

In addition to all the brilliant NEF team, we will see Caroline Lucas, John Harris, Ros Wynne-Jones, Caroline Mason, Ed Miliband, Zara John, Vince Cable, Sunder Katwala, Ruth Grove-White, Ellie Mae O’Hagan, Torsten Bell, George Gabriel, Laura Sandys, Frances Northrop, Tom Kibasi, Danielle Walker-Palmour and many, many more.
