More than a conference
LNE Oakland is designed to be different from any event you've attended before. Drawing inspiration from hackathons, conferences, networking events, festivals, and jams, the result is a unique event that has components of each. More than a conference, this is a convergence.
We have an exciting lineup of speakers, but you’ll do more than listen to talks. You'll meet and collaborate with other participants and launch project ideas. You'll learn about New Economy initiatives here in the Bay Area, and draw connections between them while connecting with each other.
Be part of the first of an annual event that will introduce you to new ideas and new people, and leave you inspired to co-create a new economic reality in the Bay Area and beyond.LEARN MORE
The New Economy
At its core, the New Economy movement is an invitation into a new worldview — one where more for me is more for you, too; one where collaboration trumps competition; one where “security” is created through relationship and community rather than amassed wealth.
LNE aims to convene and support all those who might contribute to an economy that is restorative to people, place, and planet, and that operates according to principles of democracy, justice, and appropriate scale. Faced with interconnected ecological and economic crises, we believe that shared prosperity, sustainability and an equitable society require deep, systemic changes to our economy and our institutions. Something new is required. Initiatives have been springing up all over our community that aim to build that “something new” — these are the beginnings of the New Economy.
