New Economics Foundation

NEF

London, United Kingdom

NEF aims to inspire and demonstrate real economic well-being and establish an economic system that puts people and the planet first. Promoting innovative solutions that challenge mainstream thinking on economic, environmental, and social issues, NEF combines rigorous analysis and policy debate with practical solutions on the ground, often run and designed with the help of local people, focusing on increased well-being and environmental sustainability. Working with civil society, governments, individuals, businesses, and academia, both in the UK and abroad, NEF seeks to create a greater understanding of the necessary strategies for change. NEF undertakes in-depth research, campaigning, and policy discussions and raises awareness through the media and publications. In addition, the foundation incubates new organizations and campaigns that can create long-term change in society, currently focusing on three main topics: (1) real world economics, which aims to expose the problems within international finance and economic systems and create appropriate remedies; (2) "ghost town Britain," which focuses on the decline in neighborhood shops and services that is sounding the death knell for Britain's local economies; and (3) well-being, which aims to create a new economy that serves people and the planet and begin redefining wealth and progress.
