The New Economy Network Australia (NENA) hosted our 6th Annual Conference from 5 – 7 November 2021, as part of our very first ‘Wellbeing Economy Week’, which kicked off on 1 November and concluded at the end of the NENA Conference on 7 November.
Around the world, civil society groups and many governments and businesses, are searching for new economic systems and social initiatives that can address social injustice, respond to climate change and the growing ecological crisis while ensuring people have happy, secure, thriving communities. Amidst the growing number of alternative economic concepts challenging consumer capitalism and ‘growth economics’ in the 21st Century, ‘wellbeing economics’ is gaining widespread acceptance and is being explored and implemented around the world. From New Zealand’s ‘Wellbeing Economy Budget’ to the rising popularity of ‘Doughnut Economics,’ rethinking and redefining economics is an exciting space of social change and possibility.

NENA Conferences offer a great space to share stories, experiments, project updates and research about how to build a new economy system that supports people and planet.
