On a Personal Note
Many of you know I have been facing some significant challenges this past year.  I am thrilled to report that things are settling down and I am fully reengaging my professional new economy work.  Please take a look at 3EStrategies' menu of consulting services here.   I am very excited to be back to work supporting positive, progressive new economy businesses and organizations. 
I have also recently started blogging about some of the personal aspects of these recent experiences.  If interested, you can find my blog at cylviahayes.net.
My hope and intention is that both my professional work and my writing will help generate more kindness and healing in our world. 

New Economy Week 2015
Special film screening

From November 9-15, 2015 the New Economy Coalition will host "New Economy Week: From Austerity to Prosperity"-a public conversation about the ideas that can transform society and build an economy where people and the planet matter.
There's already widespread awareness that the status quo economic system doesn't work, especially for those on the margins of society or for our environment. What's less clear is what we can do about it. Now in its third year, New Economy Week 2015 will challenge us to explore what systemic change really looks like.  The hope is that drawing attention to big ideas and concrete examples of real solutions will expand what's politically possible and bring us closer to a just, sustainable, and democratic society.
New Economy Week will convene some of the sharpest writers and activists to share their insights on what's needed to reach a democratic and fair world.
Each day, the New Economy Coalition will be publishing original content from interviews and stories in traditional publications to Twitter chats and live YouTube panels.  They'll also be highlighting work being done to build the new economy in communities across the world. 
3EStrategies is proud to be participating in new economy week.  Together with The Environmental Center and Level Magazine we are hosting a screening of the new film by Naomi Klein titled,  This Changes Everything.   The screening will take place:
When:   November 13th, 6:30pm
Where:   The Environmental Center, Bend
Cost:   $5 (all proceeds go to the Environmental Center)

Remember, the economy is not an act of God or a force of Nature.  It is a human-made construct.  We invented it and we can reinvent it.  Now is the time to get serious about shifting to an economy that improves the health and wellbeing of the planet and the people who call it home.
