Event description
The New Economy Network Australia (NENA) is pleased to be hosting our 6th Annual Conference from 5 – 7 November 2021 in Brisbane and online

About this event

** 2021 is a hybrid conference – you can participate entirely online, or join us ‘in person’ for all/any sessions, at QUT Kelvin Grove Campus, Brisbane **

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 work of the international Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WeALL), to the rising popularity of ‘Doughnut Economics,’ rethinking and redefining economics is an exciting space of social change and possibility.

Join our thriving Australian new economy network and our guest speakers from around the world, as we explore the meaning of ‘wellbeing’ and discuss ways that we can reshape Australia's economic system, in a rapidly changing world. 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.
