"People are aware that they cannot continue in the same old way but are immobilized because they cannot imagine an alternative. We need a vision that recognizes that we are at one of the great turning points in human history when the survival of our planet and the restoration of our humanity require a great sea change in our ecological, economic, political, and spiritual values."
-Grace Lee Boggs

New Economy Week 2015 put forward five pressing challenges that stand between us and tomorrow’s economy and invited New Economy Coalition member organizations, community leaders, researchers—and you!—to respond to them.

Day 1: Good Work and Opportunity for All
Day 2: Building an Economy Where #BlackLivesMatter
Day 3: Democracy Versus the 1% 
Day 4: A People’s Climate Agenda
Day 5: Enough to Go Around

Each day, we published original content across the internet—from interviews and stories in traditional publications to Twitter chats and live YouTube panels. We also put out a call for in-person events that grapple with these issues and highlight work being done to build the new economy in communities across the world. Over the course of the week, there were over 50 in-person-events across the US and Canada, several exciting webinars and online panels, and over 40 written pieces from NEC members and allies!
