Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve put our Economics of Happiness conferences and courses for 2020-2021 on hold.
Instead we’ve organized numerous online events and also take part in events organized by other partners.

Economics of Happiness Conferences
Every year Local Futures hosts a range of different events both large and small. Our biggest ongoing event series is the Economics of Happiness Conference series. During the conferences, we trigger debate about the negative impacts of economic globalization and explore alternatives towards a more sustainable community-based society.
To date, we have held 24 conferences in 7 different countries. For information about our past conferences, including photos and videos of many inspiring speakers, click here.
