    New Economy Symposium

    A New Economy for North Queensland symposium will bring together people keen to explore (or already exploring) new, more sustainable ways of doing things in areas such as food and energy, work, production and consumption, social enterprise, the built environment, income distribution and population. It will be an opportunity to look outside the box, to creatively question traditional ways of doing things, and to explore new options for a fair, flourishing and sustainable region. 

    Our goal is clear: Communities and economies that fit within the productive capacity of a healthy environment. 

    Join us for a thought-provoking and direction-shifting weekend on beautiful Magnetic Island.


    The program runs from 8.00 a.m. Saturday to 4.30 p.m. Sunday and includes two full days of lectures, workshops and panel discussions, with a conference dinner on the Saturday evening. 

    Keynote speakers include Richard Denniss, Australia Institute; Charles Massey, Regenerative Agriculture; Michelle Moloney, NENA; Tim Buckley, IEEFA; Amanda Cahill, Next Economy; and (via internet) Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics, UK.
