In 2014, Bay Bucks is co-hosting the first annual Living the New Economy Convergence, bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, activists, non-profits, producers, and makers to inspire new ideas and produce tangible projects that move the Bay Area closer to a New Economy. It focuses on transformative solutions and opportunities within six intersectional tracks: Alternative Money & Finance, New Business Models, New Justice, Housing & Neighborhoods, Food Land & Water, and Local Manufacturing. This event aims to convene and support all those who might contribute to an economy that is restorative to people, place, and planet, and that operates according to principles of democracy, justice and appropriate scale.
