Living the New Economy

Nov 29-Dec 5 2013


The Healing Cities Institute and EcoDesign Resource Society are hosting a week of events in Victoria, Nov 29-Dec 5, 2013, designed to energize, accelerate and celebrate the people, institutions and collaborations that are bringing a new economic movement to life.

These events will inspire new collaborations, facilitate new project partnerships, accelerate the work of social entrepreneurs, and showcase local innovation.

Check out the 7 day program.

The “New Economy” encompasses:

  • economic activities that bring the human economy into greater balance with our natural ecosystems;
  • a movement towards a more equitable economic arrangement for people and communities, including more collaborative and distributed forms of ownership and greater economic democracy;
  • the building of economic, physical and social resilience in local economies and communities;
  • the “sharing economy”, which includes collaborative consumption and the restoration of a more human and social element to economic transactions and other economic activities;
  • and the use of new technologies, especially communications and internet-based technologies, to make all of the above possible in ways they haven’t been before.
