Announcing a New Project: The Campus Network for a New Economy

New Economics Institute

The New Economics Institute is thrilled to announce a new nationwide project: The Campus Network, an effort to build the foundation of a student-led movement for a New Economy.

We're starting the program with a call for proposals from college students to host strategic summits on the transition to a just and sustainable economy. We will award eight grants of up to $5,000 and provide each campus with ongoing training and support. The goal of the summits is to raise awareness about the New Economy on college campuses and build meaningful collaborations between students and their local communities.The hope is that this will catalyze a nationwide student movement and create a powerful network of young leaders committed to building the New Economy.

Will you help us spread the word? Together, we can make sure that every student interested in this work is made aware of this special opportunity. Here are three ways you can help today:
  1. Find out more about the Campus Network (and begin the application process if you're a student!)
  2. Share this opportunity on Facebook
  3. Forward this email to a friend
The strategic summits will lead into a Summer 2013 convergence, bringing student leaders from across the nation together with other New Economy practitioners and leaders. We hope that the Campus Network is just the beginning of what will become a powerful student movement for the New Economy.

We hope you're as excited as we are!
