    The whisper is becoming a roar: new economy, new ecology, new ways of being in the world.

    our peers in innovation and positive changemaking from across the New Economy spectrum.

    We’re excited to work with Enkel to bring the NENA Annual Conference to Perth, and we look forward to reconnecting with existing NENA members and learning about new initiatives and networks in Western Australia.

    Our focus at Enkel is future-positive. We gather people who are doing extraordinary work across various fields, cross-pollinating the innovative approaches that will help us transition to a new and better world. NENA shares this orientation with us, with the New Economy as the framework for change. We’re absolutely delighted to be collaborating with them to auspice this conference in Western Australia.

    Maar Koodjal welcomes the opportunity to bring the voice of First Nations people to the movement for a new economy in Australia. We must together make urgent progress towards a participative economy that provides a fair go for all people and for our precious Nyoongar Boodjar.

    We at the Centre for Social Impact are very happy to be co-hosting the New Economy Network Australia Conference with Enkel Collective at UWA. Social justice has to be front and centre of our economic system, and we need to create more jobs for those missing out in our present economy.

    Together with NENA, we are so looking forward to inspiring, connecting and supporting the changemaking community this October. Designed as a peer-level conference for innovators and game changers, our focus is on engagement and connections, moving us beyond the realm of sharing ideas and into inspired action and collaboration.

    These are extraordinary times we live in. Humanity is being called upon for an extraordinary response. To the extent we can embody our ideal selves... To the extent we can expand our vision to creative solutions... To the extent we can be responsive to the needs of our fellow living beings... To the extent people who have the privilege to participate in a conference such as this make real progress in these endeavours... this is the extent we will have capacity to transcend our existing paradigms and build a new economy that will fulfil not just the basic needs of everyone but a quality of life and happiness which we can only now begin to conceptualise.
