Participation in NEN
NEN is a broad welcoming space. There are multiple ways of participating in the Network to accommodate different interests. NEN is open to membership by all organizations and individuals who are working for a new economy that supports people and the planet.
Working Groups are comprised of active members and others using NEN to do ongoing work together. “Working Group” is a term of art referring here to any grouping of individuals and organizations that come together to further the work on NEN and meet the baseline criteria set out below. For example, a Working Group could be formed by the heads of all institutional members of NEN for the purpose of facilitating ongoing communication, or a Working Group could be a closed group of scholars and analysts jointly engaged in a discreet policy research project. Working Groups can be freely established by NEN members (non-members may participate in but not create or chair NEN Working Groups).
