New Economics Foundation (NEF)

New Economics Foundation (NEF) is an independent think-tank that inspires and demonstrates real economic well-being. This foundation aims to improve quality of life by promoting innovative solutions that challenge mainstream thinking on economic, environment and social issues.

NEF was founded in 1986 by the leaders of The Other Economic Summit (TOES) which forced issues such as international debt onto the agenda of the G7 and G8 summits. NEF combines rigorous analysis and policy debate with practical solutions on the ground, often run and designed with the help of local people. It also creates new ways of measuring progress towards increased well-being and environmental sustainability.

NEF works with all sections of society in the UK and internationally (civil society, government, individuals, businesses and academia) to create more understanding and strategies for change.

Our World is Not For Sale (OWINFS) (...)

“Our World Is Not for Sale” is a worldwide network of organizations; activists and social movements committed to challenging trade and investment agreements that advance the interests of the world’s most powerful corporations at the expense of people and the environment, and to a sustainable, socially just, democratic and accountable multilateral trading system.
OWINFS grew out of the international campaigns against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Linkages are also made between all the various pieces of the corporate-driven trade agenda, from the WTO to regional and bilateral agreements. OWINFS members are all part of national and regional campaigns fighting unfair trade agreements, including the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Plan Puebla Panama (PPP).
Their efforts include convening regular international conference calls, meetings and e-mail discussions that provide movement leaders with the opportunity to share and develop ideas and strategy, organizing delegations of social movement actors to Geneva, Switzerland where the WTO is headquartered, to lobby negotiators and to provide them with critical analysis of the impacts of existing and proposed WTO policy, and organizing international press conferences, days of action and demonstrations in order to pressure government leaders and trade negotiators to roll-back harmful trade policy provisions, and to cease to craft more agreements that undermine the public interest.
