Transformative Economies Lab is a collaborative investigation exploring, mapping, and articulating a practical, sustainable, equitable economy as it unfolds around the globe. The aim of the lab is to use an existing platform (Real Economy Lab) which provides a comprehensive picture of the projects, ideas, movements and networks offering viable alternatives to the mainstream market-bases economic system, and to present this as a compelling case for wider coordination and support by all stakeholders. We invite you to take part of the survey !
An increasing array of practitioners, researchers and changemakers are working towards a new economic system, transforming the current paradigm based on growth and wealth accumulation. How can the movements and organisations carrying out these efforts and taking part in the World Social Forum of Transformative Economies (WSFTE) be mapped? What are their connections? How might they better recognize and achieve common goals? The first step involves turning to prominent groups in the field and asking: what matters to your work, what are your ambitions, and how are you trying to accomplish your aims?
We welcome and encourage your thinking around the questions, definitions, and the surveying process more generally. The Transformative Economies Lab is the result of a collaboration between Real Economy Lab, RIPESS Europe, MES Occitanie and Open Atlas (Communecter) emerging in the WSFTE Mapping commission. It is based on the Real Economy Lab, a project initiated by Jules Peck, with support from Fondation Charles Leopold Mayer, New Economics Foundation, Transition Network, and Metamaps.
