March 20th – 22nd, 2020
Hosted by New Economy Network Australia & Local Futures
Byron Community Centre
Byron Bay, Australia
We’re pleased to announce that, in cooperation with New Economy Network Australia, we’ll be hosting an inspiring 3-day event – called ‘Going Local: Hope in a Time of Crisis’ – with a focus on bridging the gaps between single-issue activist campaigns and presenting a holistic strategy for social, ecological, and economic renewal.
How can we work together to create
a fundamentally different economic system and
a more beautiful world?
Today, as we face a seemingly endless series of crises, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. But seeing how our problems – from climate change to our personal well-being – are fundamentally linked to our economic system can be deeply empowering as well. Decades of failure by governments to adopt a big-picture approach to the future have led to downstream solutions, self-blame, and epidemics of depression and anxiety.
However, in recent years, many individuals and organizations involved in separate campaigns 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 systemic change. We owe it to ourselves and our children to join this movement.
Program available soon!
