September 28th – 29th, 2019
Sathya Sai Samskruta Sadanam
Hosur Road, Bengaluru, India
Join us for an enlivening and meaningful two days of
talks, discussions & networking.
For the second time, Local Futures is co-hosting a conference with Bhoomi College in Bengaluru, India. The first was in 2014, when we co-hosted the 3rd international gathering in the Economics of Happiness Conference Series (it was a terrific event, and you can read more about it here). Now Bhoomi and Local Futures are joining forces again, this time with a special focus on education – to explore how we can educate with local economies and sustainable living in mind.
During the gathering, we will be addressing the connections between present-day educational models and the larger economic system, and looking at how we can rethink education to prepare coming generations for healthy sustainable living within ecological limits.
The twin themes for the conference – Decoding Economics and Re-thinking Education – will bring together thinkers, educators, activists, practitioners, and youth for two days of inspirational talks, lively discussions, dialogues, and workshops focused on transitioning towards an ecological age.
The official conference poster can be downloaded here.
