IN A NUTSHELL
From solving the tragedy of the commons to building a financial system fit for purpose, or shaping the future of work to tackling climate change – it is becoming increasingly clear that the current economic system is incapable of addressing the interlinked crises of environmental unsustainability, economic instability, and social inequality. There are a number of alternative approaches that offer insights into how an economy could operate differently; but we urgently need a vision for a new economy that delivers economic wellbeing for all within environmental limits, and the intellectual thinking that is necessary to get to this point.
The Source network identifies issues and looks for tipping points where systemic change can be created.
Source is a network bringing together academics, policy professionals and civil society organisers from across Europe committed to tackling the biggest economic, environmental and social challenges we face today. Ultimately, Source aims to support the development of an economy that delivers wellbeing for all within environmental limits. Source does not want to replicate already existing initiatives, rather to facilitate the connections between members and to support collaborative work on urgent issues today in a way that helps deliver systemic change in the mid-long term. Campaign and policy wins aimed at transformational change at European level require strategy and alignment – and Source aims to provide just that, acting as a spring board for strengthened collaboration on environmental, social and economic justice issues.
