“Local futures”

Pre-recorded lecture

Duration: 1 hour

VENUE: Banegard



Prerecorded lecture by Helena Norberg-Hodge which will bring a discussion about culture, society and the way that we work together is becoming too segregated. Bringing examples from the past, but realising that we cannot go back to what was but instead can only look forwards to what is coming. Helena Norberg-Hodge is a respected analyst of the global economy’s impacts on communities, local economies, and personal identity around the world and the author of The Economics of Happiness. This hour-long session dives deep into many aspects of life and questions the status quo. Highlighting the connection between our own societies and the natural world. With actionable solutions that aim for “humanity to move together in a direction that supports life”, Helena will use her experiences and knowledge to explain some of the challenges and solutions globally.
