Hope in a Time of Crisis
Byron Bay, Australia
Hosted by New Economy Network Australia & Local Futures
March 20th – 22d, 2020
In cooperation with New Economy Network Australia, Local Futures will host this inspiring 3-day event with a focus on learning, sharing experiences, and developing collaborative projects to transform the economy for the better.
In recent years, many individuals and organizations involved in separate campaigns (on economic, environmental, and social issues) have begun to collaborate and embrace a holistic approach that moves beyond single issues. A big-picture, broad analysis is beginning to build a united movement for fundamental change, and we hope these three days will help water those seeds.
