Strategies for a New Economy: A Free 3-Day Live Web Conference
This event has ended. Join the eOmega Community to stay informed of upcoming online learning opportunities.
We are at a turning point in history. Crises in the environment and the economy, and the growing inequity between wealthy and poor, all have their roots in the current economic system.
What would an economy based on principles of fairness and sustainability look like? How do we collectively strategize to fully implement it? What are the implications for our culture, our society, and our health and well-being?
These pressing questions will be addressed at the New Economics Institute’s free 3-day live online conference from Bard College. More than 20 speakers will gather together to reshape our economic system by working together to achieve a common goal. We invite you to be part of the solution.
