Our Approach

Beyond grant-making, we are exploring how we can best use our curation and convening power, our networks, and our skills and resources to:

  • Strengthen the new economy ecosystem, understanding and supporting the shared needs of the field and strengthening the ‘connective tissue’ between organisations and actors.
  • Mobilise resources, introducing new funders to the field and encouraging existing funders to keep looking to the edges of new thinking and practice.
  • Grow the field, encouraging new and expanding lines to be drawn around who and what is part of it, and building bridges with other social and ecological movements.
  • Enable alignment, coherence and collaboration as the new economy field grows and changes, supporting others to situate themselves within a wider ecosystem, valuing different routes to change and unlocking collective power.
