Can we genuinely and collectively search for frameworks and visions that are alternatives to today’s dominant economic and political system ?

It requires courage to withstand the mainstream prejudices and to distance ourselves from an existing heritage of ideas, world views and cultures.

The nonviolent economy conference is a space to reflect on an other economic system, different from the conventional system causing so many inequalities.

The Conference does not aim at criticising the economic system currently in place.

It wants to offer and highlight new initiatives, new ideas, new possibilities, that could be implemented in today’s system to start rebalance the global economic game.


This Conference is meant to be international as the search for alternatives is not about everyone retreating into states of fear around scarcity and deprivation, but of building something together within the context of equity, sustainability and what is a ‘agreed-upon’ sense of the ethical - as explained here.

The Campaign interrogates that what is ‘economically correct’ is not necessarily ‘ethically correct’, for both the people and the planet.
