What we do
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.
NEONs resource page is full of all the best materials developed through NEON’s years of training and convening – from frameworks for understanding the neoliberal economic system to event strategy templates. Check it out!
What people say about NEON
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
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!
…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.
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.
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.
