Following up on her appearance at the Brussels Economic Forum, Helena Norberg-Hodge will host an evening of discussion on the concept of ‘the economics of happiness’.
The seemingly disparate crises we face – climate change, economic instability, the rise of authoritarianism, and more – are actually connected. This means there is a way to tackle these problems simultaneously: systemic economic localisation. Helena will describe how rebuilding our connections to one another and to the natural world can restore ecological health, rebuild secure livelihoods, and nurture peace and deeper human contentment.
