Living the New Economy Open Call For Sessions

This year’s Living the New Economy Oakland Convergence to be held at Mills College, October 21-23 will shine the light on what’s working, what’s not, and what more we can do to build the inclusive, vibrant Oakland of our dreams. Included are two days of workshops, panels with local leaders, presentations, and self-organized open space sessions, followed by a day-long series of “Activation Sessions” for groups seeking mentorship and support in their policy campaigns, movement initiatives, or social enterprises.

To provide opportunities for our community to surface the issues of greatest concern to them, a majority of our talks and workshop content will be community driven. We are inviting community members to submit proposals for session topics that they are interested in coordinating for the conference. If selected, presenters will also receive discounted passes to attend the entire convergence (presenter passes will more than 50% off at $95 each).
