NEON Europe


NEON Europe was born out of a need to tackle the root causes of the common problems we face across Europe.

Starting as a project of the New Economy Organisers Network, we bring together  European activists, organisers and campaigners working to replace neoliberalism with an economy and politics based on social and environmental justice. The projects we run in NEON Europe are designed and delivered to support activists working across the continent.
