We believe in a future where South Africa has a new economy powered by renewable energy, equity and collective well-being.

We work with campaigners, researchers, community leaders, and policymakers to win the policies, strategies, and social benefits that assure us a more sustainable future.

About us

The New Economy Hub partners with people campaigning to decarbonise South Africa and build an inclusive net-zero economy that delivers social security and economic justice. 

The Hub provides flexible and movement-generous support to initiatives that are building movement power and advancing concrete development pathways for a clean and equitable energy future that underpins a new economy and just society in South Africa.

We are building an ecosystem of actors to win us the new economy


We strengthen the capability of climate champions to build and grow movement power and take collective action that shapes the outcomes of transition debates and planning and decision-making processes to deliver a sustainable and equitable economy.

Charting pathways to a new economy

We equip climate champions to build technical and community-owned knowledge to chart the concrete development pathways that can lead South Africa to a new and sustainable economy capable of delivering social and economic justice.

Amplifying voice
and impact

We enable climate champions to launch and land new narratives and compelling campaigns that build shared understandings and mobilise authentic support for the adoption of policies, initiatives, and investments that deliver a just transition in South Africa.
