Working to support communities across Australia to implement approaches to strengthen and stimulate their local economies so that they serve both people and the planet.
IMPACT AREA: Protection and Restoration of the Environment, Decent Work and Economic Growth
The Next Economy works across four areas to build economic solutions that work for both people and the planet. They develop the capacity of communities, shift the debate to generate awareness of solutions, engage in policy advocacy, and build a strong movement in Australia calling for a new economy.
These solutions will move Australia towards a zero emissions economy, promote locally-owned renewable energy projects, encourage food justice initiatives that support both producers and consumers, and collaborate on economic development that meets community needs.
