More about NEON


Climate change, soaring inequality, social injustice… is this really the best our economy can do?

NEON is an independent network of over 1000 activists working to replace neoliberalism with an economy and politics based on social and environmental justice. Our members come from trade unions, grassroots groups, NGOs, faith-based campaigns, political parties and all across civil society. We run trainings, share skills and ideas and collaborate on campaigns.

What people say about NEON

Yuan Yang, Rethinking Economics

I can’t imagine how we would be organising today without the enthusiasm, support, and wisdom of NEON. It is really vital for budding campaigns like ours to have access to networks and mentorship, and I think NEON is doing a great job

Yuan Yang, Rethinking Economics
Penny Wangari-Jones, Racial Justice Network

NEON’s Campaign Lab programme is the best thing anyone serious about creating and making change could do. The mix of people, energy, atmosphere, the knowledge and skills in one room would beat any higher education facility … hands down!

Penny Wangari-Jones, Racial Justice Network
Susan Treadwell, Open Society Initiative for Europe

…nothing short of transformational in helping me to view my work as part of a much larger struggle for systems change for social, economic, and environmental justice. What I have learned from the amazing trainers and participants alike has empowered me to be a better leader and ally.

Susan Treadwell, Open Society Initiative for Europe
Frances O'Grady, TUC

I was inspired by NEON and the people I met who are savvy, talented and, in a variety of ways, all committed to a more equal world. Not a bad basis for an alliance.

Frances O'Grady, TUC
Tom Wright, Friends of the Earth

Quite simply, the NEON Movement-Building Masterclass was the best training course I’ve ever been on. It was incredibly well-structured, expertly facilitated and I took away a wealth of new knowledge and skills that I can use to help build and maintain sustainable movements in the world of environmental activism.
