Around the world today, there is a universal sense that we are living through a unique moment in history. Rarely before has the need for systemic change been more obvious or more urgent.
The economic and social crisis that continues to unfold across the globe requires a new vision of political economy that can offer a truly progressive alternative to the neo-liberal paradigm that is undermining the civil and democratic foundations of our societies and the economic and social well being of individuals and their communities.
The Synergia Institute is an international network of individuals and organizations that unites academics, social activists, practitioners and policymakers in a common effort to articulate, advocate, and implement models of economic and social practice that transition societies to a new model of political economy that is sustainable, democratic, socially just, and based on the principles of co-operation and the common good.
Synergia unites education, training, and praxis in both online and face-to-face encounters that integrate peer-to-peer learning and knowledge sharing as a key feature of our social change work.
