Local Futures works to renew ecological, social and spiritual well-being by promoting a systemic shift towards economic localization.
A pioneer of the new economy movement, Local Futures has been raising awareness for four decades about the need to shift direction – away from dependence on global monopolies, and towards decentralized, regional economies.
We produce books, films, and other ‘education for action’ tools, as well as organizing activist-oriented conferences and workshops worldwide. These programs are helping to catalyze a global movement for change.
Watch our new Animation on localization, and our award-winning documentary The Economics of Happiness – both translated into more than 25 languages. Or read our Booklet on localization, (also available in Chinese) written by Helena Norberg-Hodge .
