This statement, which has been co-written and signed by representatives from new economy movements worldwide, is based on an international research conducted by D-Lab, the University of Barcelona and NESI Forum during the second half of 2016 and up to February 2017. Data was collected through an online survey and several workshops about the goals and values that should govern a new economy with the contribution of 600 people from 35 countries.
