25th-29th June | Schumacher College, Totnes, UK
What would the world look like if humans lived harmoniously with nature rather than creating environmental mayhem?
What strategies can be employed to overcome the entrenched power of big business, big banks, and big government?
We’ll dig into these questions in Earth, Culture, Economy, an open course at Schumacher College led by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Stephan Harding, and Satish Kumar. Our approach will be broad and holistic and we will consider a range of themes from the perspective of both the global North and South, including:
• How to measure real progress • Putting food and farming at the center of the local economy • Tackling climate change through localising trade • The balance between urban and rural • The spiritual and psychological benefits of connecting to nature and community • Healthcare in a life-based economy • Resolving the roots of racial, ethnic and religious conflict • Restoring democracy through localisation
We also have two other events coming up in the UK this summer:
An evening of discussion and Q&A with Helena Norberg-Hodge and Jason Hickel
19th June | London, UK
A how-to course on big picture activism
13th-17th July | 42 Acres, Frome, UK
These events will present a global perspective on localisation and equip you with practical strategies for supporting genuine social, ecological, and economic renewal wherever you may be. We look forward to seeing you there!
