New Economy Week is October 10 through October 20!
This fall, come celebrate the New Economy with people across Vermont and across the country! There are many fun and interesting activities planned, from a New Economy dance at the Old Labor Hall in Barre on October 12th, a discussion of how co-ops democratize the economy in Burlington on the 15th, to New Economy Nights that discuss public banking, health care, institutional divestment and local investment. Check out our Calendar and the drop-down items in New Economy Week tab for more information. We're updating events frequently, so keep checking back for more recent additions.
Vermonters for a New Economy is a coalition of organizations, businesses, and individuals who are all working to create a new economy for Vermont. You can work with us to find new ways to own and operate businesses, do our banking, exchange goods and services, finance projects, and earn income. This work enables us to pursue regenerative economic activities to strengthen our food systems, build renewable energy, reuse and recycle byproducts, and foster creativity, culture, and healthy lifestyles. You can join by writing to email@example.com.
