Event Description

Village Vancouver is a proud community partner of 

Living the New Economy, Oct 15 - 20
Performance Works, Granville Island, Vancouver

Come to connect, collaborate and create at the 6-day confluence of people and ideas towards an economy as if people and the planet matter

We're talking about connections.  Increasingly critical connections to make is that of the pedal to the metal, and the rubber to the road. It is no longer enough simply to talk about the things we can do to positively transform our economy; we must get together and DO them. That's what Living the New Economy is all about.

An exciting line up of events includes:

  • Mark Lakeman, founder of Portland's City Repair
  • Ian Mackenzie, new paradigm film director/producer and a screening of his new film, Reactor (Occupy Love, Sacred Economics)
  • Indigenous Leadership and Perspectives on the New Economy
  • Generative Change for a New Economy, with Tam Lundy
  • Ashoka Canada Changemaker Showcase, with Groundswell Grassroots Economic Alternatives
  • Leading by Collaboration: Facing Ecological Contraints Beyond the Here and Now
  • Changemakers' Night Out Volume III: Meshworking the Networks
  • Live crowdfunding
  • Workshops and dialogues on community currencies, financing the new economy, collaborative platforms, shared spaces, storytelling, and more!
