Should future societies be more local, self-organised and focused on contributing to commonly shared wealth? If goods and services a community needs are produced locally and regionally, can this lead to more resilient communities, reduce inequality and improve environmental health?
The pandemic and geopolitics have demonstrated vulnerabilities of communities that are heavily dependent on global supply chains. Join us to hear from Helena Norberg-Hodge, a pioneer of the localization movement on whether ‘going local’ can be a key strategy for restoring ecological and social wellbeing. What if more of our needs were met through common goods created from a peer-to-peer production system? Michel Bauwens will share about the significance of self-organising communities focused on the production of common goods that freely share with one another. Together they will discuss whether such a myriad of diverse initiatives by local citizens and enterprises can achieve trans-local impact by being open and connected to one another, thereby acting as ‘solution-multipliers’.
