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. The network focuses on tipping point issues that have the potential to generate real action and impact.
The Source network is co-ordinated by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), the UK's leading think tank promoting social, economic and environmental justice. Our aim is to transform the economy so that it works for people and the planet.
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 current economic system is incapable of addressing the interlinked crises of environmental unsustainability, economic instability, and social inequality.
The Source network identifies issues and looks for tipping points where systemic change can be created. By collaborating with campaigners and policy makers, Source aims to support the development of an economy that delivers economic wellbeing for all within environmental limits.
The network brings together in one place a diverse range of inspirational voices from the worlds of academia, policy making, civil society, and grassroots organisations. This platform provides an online space for discussion and constructive debate, but it is also a meeting point to forge new working collaborations across Europe.
