“Rules Change: The DC Gathering” is a two-day summit – presentations, circle-round discussions and workshops — to learn about fundamental change in our economic system, how it affects corporations, people, markets and democracy, and what is being done about it. It’s for executives, public officials, scholars, researchers, policy activists, students and engaged citizens.

Join a public unveiling of the Civic Stewardship Mapping Project.
Hear from and chat with noted authors and activists.
Assess two decades of mainstream thought on corporate regulation, governance and global-resources impact.
Understand what common ground exists for changes in public policies, marketplaces, communities — and how we trust each other — from Main Street to Wall Street.“Rules Change: The DC Gathering” is a learning initiative of the Rules Change Project (http://www.ruleschange.org ), an open coalition to spotlight and amplify existing efforts at economic “rules change.” It is an informal, non-partisan collaboration of individuals and independent groups helping to launch a national conversation among media, politicians, scholars and engaged citizens.
