Findhorn Fellow and Founder of Local Futures, Helena Norberg-Hodge, on building an international alliance for localization. With Charles Eisenstein and Manish Jain….
“The movement for localization is growing rapidly, worldwide. These international voices from ISEC’s Economics of Happiness conference in Bangalore, India, succinctly tell us why globalization is so damaging, why localization is the most strategic antidote, and what we can do to help make the shift from global to local.”
We need a united ‘No’ – one giant ‘No’ – to a continuation of that system [globalization] and, at the same time, we need to actually see ourselves as part of an enormous movement, involving hundreds of millions of people that are saying many ‘Yeses’ to diverse ecosystems, diverse cultures, diverse identities. This is about reclaiming our right to be who we are in our diverse ways of being. It’s about reclaiming the diversity that is life.
