The 2nd Annual New Economy Week is a nationwide event organized by the New Economy Coalition that is an opportunity for people to explore what it would take to build the economy we need, one that works for people, place, and planet.
Online discussions and in-person events will take place from October 13-19. Two are happening in the Greater Philadelphia area next week:
Philly Co-op Monthly Happy Hour
Philadelphia area co-operators will gather for a casual happy hour hosted by the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance at Fergie’s Pub, 1214 Sansom St, on October 16 at 5:30 pm. The happy hour will be an opportunity for the whole co-op community to get to know PACA Board candidates before the election as well as meet the new PACA executive director, Peter Frank.
PACA will also host it’s first annual membership meeting on November 15.
Map Jam in Media, PA with Transition Town Media
Sharing Cities Network is launching the Second Annual Global Map Jam to bring activists together in cities around the world to connect the dots and map grassroots sharing projects, cooperatives, community resources, and the commons.
Transition Town Media in Media will host a local edition at Providence Friends Meeting, 105 N Providence Rd, Media, PA 19063, on October 18 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. which allows participants to gather together and brainstorm what resources we have in our community and put them on Media’s map.
