National hubs

We're working together with local civil society groups around the world to explore out what works in different national contexts, design locally relevant campaigns, and develop new green economies from the bottom up.

Why

Here at the Coalition, we know that reforming our economies starts with people not policy documents. This transition needs to respond to people's lives - to their realities, their worries, their hopes - if it is to go to scale at speed. It needs to be relevant at ballot boxes, shop counters and job centres. It needs to be rooted in local experiences and national contexts.

What

We are working with local partners in 7 countries and regions around the world. Together with their own networks of activists, researchers, policy makers and local business, they are inspiring national conversations on economic reform. What does green investment mean for small companies in the Caribbean? What does growth within ecological limits mean to an economic power-house like India? What job opportunities do renewable energies offer the poorest in South Africa?

Explore what is happening near you in South Africa, the Caribbean, Uganda, Senegal, Peru, India and Mongolia.

How

Taking a locally rooted approach we are:

  • Exploring what a transition looks like from multiple perspectives, and what opportunities it could offer people in their every day lives, families and jobs.
  • Taking stock of what policies, initiatives and programmes have been put in place already, and asking to what extent these are making a difference on the ground.
  • Connecting local and national activists, community groups and civil society networks to build their understanding of economic reform.
  • Convening diverse perspectives from different sectors - energy, agriculture, transport, infrastructure - to understand the different transition pathways.
  • Developing an online space to support the ongoing dialogue and mobilisation.
  • Supporting networks of small and informal businesses to connect
