What we do
NESI is the only Global Forum on New Economy & Social Innovation which brings together the main actors of change and opinion leaders to think, talk and lay the foundations of a new economy more sustainable, social, based on values and aimed at the common good.
NESI FORUM is a multi-stakeholder event that encourages citizens, entrepreneurs, companies, cities and organizations to exploring ways of collaboration and cocreate the first global Manifesto for a New Economy.
NESI's objectives are:
1) Create a road map marked by global experts which provides the steps to guide governments towards a new paradigm based on values and which guarantees the wellbeing of all people.
2) Initiate the exchange of information and proposals to create solid links of cooperation amongst organizations across the world, allowing for the fruition of plans and strategies for participants to act in a collaborative manner, including new economic models, NGOs, business associations, public administrations and social movements.
3) Mobilize firms, NGOs, social movements, the academic world and civil society to contribute through "bottom-up" processes to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development objectives as well as those set in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
NESI is an open and inclusive project that seeks the active collaboration of citizens.
From now until the date of the forum, it is inviting people to participate in the co-creation of the first Manifesto for a New Economy, a five-question survey that aims to draft the final document to be presented at the Málaga forum, from 19th to 22nd April, 2017.
