‘Going local’ is a powerful strategy to repair our fractured world—our ecosystems, our societies and ourselves.

The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalisation and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localisation.

Awareness Films and Talks

This group is here to share lots of great information and ideas about how to change our world for the better.  We examine and discuss social and environmental challenges and solutions that affect all the creatures who share this planet.  The format is to have a guest film and/or speaker and interactive discussion mixed with food and drink.  Just the sort of creative mind candy we need to drive positive action.

This forum is open to anyone to contribute, share and (electrically) drive change.
