The Next System Project

Deep crises of economic inequality, racial injustice and climate change—to name but three—are upon us, and systemic problems require systemic solution.

 

Description

A project of The Democracy Collaborative thenextsystem.org

The Next System Project is an initiative of The Democracy Collaborative aimed at bold thinking and action to address the systemic challenges the U.S. faces now and in coming decades. Deep crises of economic inequality, racial injustice and climate change—to name but three—are upon us, and systemic problems require systemic solutions.

Working with a broad group of researchers, theorists and activists, we are using the best research, understanding and strategic thinking, on the one hand, and on-the-ground organizing and development experience, on the other, to promote visions, models and pathways that point to a “next system” radically different in fundamental ways from the failed systems of the past and present and capable of delivering superior social, economic and ecological outcomes.
