When & Where
Hosted by the Sustainable Economies Law Center
The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) charts the changing legal territory of the new economy, educating communities and individuals about the possibilities and limits of creative economic structures, and advocating for laws that clear the way for more sustainable economic development. SELC provides essential legal tools — education, research, advice, and advocacy — to support this transition to localized, resilient economies. Our work focuses on practices that promote justice and sharing, including cooperatives, community currencies, community-supported enterprises, local investing, cohousing, urban agriculture, community renewable energy, and other innovative economic strategies.
