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. Over the course of one of our Economics of Happiness 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 20 conferences in 7 different countries. Check back soon for a list of upcoming conferences in 2019.
In addition to our international conferences, we host a variety of other events – talks, workshops, seminars, courses – to raise awareness about the root causes of our global crises and explore systemic strategies for change. Check back soon about events coming up in 2019.
