Despite the good intentions of the Sustainable Development Goals we are still coping with problems such as poverty, inequality or the violation of human rights.
Under the current economic system new problems have arisen such as the climate change or forced migration.
It is time to create a new narrative and to set up the principles of a new economy.
On the other hand, so-called New Economy models (NEMs) are trying to demonstrate that other economic model is feasible. Models such as Social&Solidarity Economy, Economy for the Common Good, Sharing Economy (based on values), Circular Economy, Fair Trade, Social Enterprises, Transition Town or Degrowth are demonstrating both theoretically and practically that there are alternatives.
For all the above, our aim is to strengthen collaboration among all the NEMs and the organizations, movements and people who dream and work for a new democratic and people-oriented economy.'

Director of New Economy & Social Innovation (NESIFORUM2017)
The NESI Forum aims to bring together all the pioneer thinkers of the new economy and social innovation as well as representatives of alternative economic models working to co-create a more sustainable and human-oriented economy.
The Forum will be a meeting place to identify what we share and how we can work together to achieve our common goals. In that way, the process will continue after NESI with specific projects that will be co-designed during the event.
This event has been designed to benefit everyone from NGOs and small business owners, to CEOs and global leaders.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of the co-creation of the first Manifesto for a New Economy.
This event will take place at the Trade Fairs & Congress Center in MALAGA (Spain). For more information, please see here.
