Key essays by Helena Norberg-Hodge and her colleagues at Local Futures.
Written over the past 25 years, some of these essays ask us to rethink our basic assumptions about human nature, poverty, progress, and happiness, while others point to the root causes of our many crises. Taken together, they outline the steps needed to bring a happier, healthier world into being.
These writings are becoming more relevant every day as our crises deepen, and the need for systemic change becomes more apparent.
“A powerful collection of essays that provide hope and clarity in these confusing and overwhelming times.” – Manish Jain, co-founder of Swaraj University
“As these pages show, beyond 'progress' lies not stagnation or collapse, but a profound renewal of community, society, and ecology.” – Charles Eisenstein, author of Climate: A New Story
“If you care about a future that gets our planet beyond war, pandemics, and climate catastrophes, these essays will provide an inspiring and practical roadmap.” – Michael Shuman, author of Put Your Money Where Your Life Is
“This book is a cartography of sensations guiding us through the din of demise. A map to shake you out of the complacency of being so thoroughly found, so thoroughly intelligible, so worryingly available to the imaginations of the familiar.” – Bayo Akomolafe, author of We Will Tell our Own Story: The Lions of Africa Speak
