New economy? Isn’t the old one good enough? Of course not! Can’t we just build a clean, green, and less mean version of our current economy? More and more people are saying that’s not enough. Join us as we explore what a new economy – where you and I, our communities, and the earth really matter – will look like! Participation is free and open to everyone, but please register for the day(s) you plan to be in attendance.
