To celebrate World Localisation Day 2021, Local Futures has gathered an impressive line-up of thoughtsmiths from across the globe to help raise awareness about the urgent need to shift direction – away from dependence on global monopolies towards decentralised, regional economies.
This year’s leading voices include David Holmgren, Russell Brand, Charles Eisenstein, Dr. Gabor Maté, Naomi Klein, Vandana Shiva, Satish Kumar and many more. The week-long program is being offered entirely for free or on a ‘pay what you can’ basis.
When David was in Mullumbimby last month he recorded an in-depth conversation with localisation activist, Helena Norberg-Hodge, which features as part of the program. David and Helena share a deep ecological sensitivity, as well as a big-picture view of the environmental movement, coming from many decades of experience. In the comfort of Helena’s home, the two discuss the cross-pollination between permaculture and other localisation initiatives, the future of energy and social and economic organisation, and much more.
