A member of the New Economy Coalition

The biggest news story right now is one that is not being reported: the emergence of a New Economy that “meets human needs, enhances the quality of life and allows us to live in balance with nature” (Vision Statement: New Economy Coalition). Building on the social venture movement, the environmental movement, and the many movements for racial and economic justice, the New Economy movement envisions a just transition to a better and stronger social, cultural and economic system.

The Media Consortium is supporting reporters in telling that story through the New Economies Reporting Project. This project is a collaboration with the New Economy Coalition and The Laura Flanders Show and is supported in part by the Park Foundation.
