The Tufts New Economy student group was established in the Spring of 2013 to address growing problems with the current economic system through both discussion and action. The new economy has many names and comes in many forms, but the common thread is that businesses, industries, institutions and individuals working within the new economy prioritize people, planet, not solely profit. The group consists of a diverse set of graduate and undergraduate students from across the Tufts community. TNE seeks to create new and tap into existing networks for both discussion and action toward a more just and sustainable economy. Last year meetings consisted of about 50% learning and discussion and 50% action. Last year’s work culminated in a Spring Summit titled, “Cultivating a New Food Economy, Putting People and Planet First.
