We appear to have a problem...

Our generation is in the process of inheriting a world in unprecedented systemic crisis. Inequality, poverty, climate change, corporate control of our democracy--these are sysymptoms of interconnected economic, political and ecological system failures. The overarching trends are so grim that some have already thrown in the towel, dismissively labeling the current cadre of folks under forty "Generation Screwed."

We're not buying it.

In communities and on campuses, young people are refusing to succumb to fatalism. We're voicing our discontent. We're saying "no" to outdated thinking, ecological destruction and structural violence. We're getting organized, but we're also innovating, finding new ways to understand our situation, meet our collective needs, express our creativity and uphold our values.

This summer, we want to bring those young leaders together.

On July 19-21, the New Economics Institute is hosting a convergence in New York City called reRoute: Building Youth and Student Power for a New Economy. The idea is to bring together a diverse generation of practitioners and organizers from across the US and Canada to share strategies, tools and stories about our work creating a solidarity economy from the ground up in our communities and on our campuses.

Early registration is on a 'pay-what-you-can-afford' basis and scholarships for housing and travel are available. Space is limited so buy your ticket today!
