#19 LOCALISATION - A WAY OF BRINGING THE ECONOMY HOME
Consumer cooperatives, local business alliances, transition towns, permaculture projects and local finance initiatives are all coming together this month to celebrate the third World Localisation Day.
Grassroots organizations are springing up all over the world proving invaluable in communities affected by climate and covid-related supply-chain failures – which are now being further highlighted by the war in Ukraine. As heartbreaking as the circumstances have been, never was there such a recent and clear signpost that this way of importing goods and flying produce around the world doesn’t work.
So joining us all the way from Australia for today’s episode is Local Futures founder and friend of the podcast Helena Norberg-Hodge. Helena is a linguist, author, filmmaker and also a pioneer of the new economy movement.
She was previously behind the International Society for Ecology and Culture but created Local Futures as a non-profit organization “dedicated to the revitalization of cultural and biological diversity, and the strengthening of local communities and economies worldwide.”
