Voices of Hope in a Time of Crisis
Concerned about climate change?
Care about stopping global conflicts?
Worried about financial insecurity and income inequality?
Want to support local food systems and local businesses?
Interested in the future of education? Healthcare? Endangered species?

Then join us for a day of thought-provoking and constructive talks on our multiple crises and how we can solve them.  It can sometimes seem like there is no reason for hope.  But there is a solution.  We call it the "economics of happiness."  

In our film, The Economics of Happiness, we documented how the global economy is destroying ecosystems, cultures and any prospect of financial security. The economy also deeply affects our personal wellbeing, with rates of depression, alienation, suicide and violence on the rise. There is an alternative: localization. Rebuilding local economies is a solution multipliertackling our most pressing environmental, social and economic crises, while creating the conditions for increased wellbeing.

This event will celebrate the launch of the International Alliance for Localization (IAL), which aims to connect a growing network of individuals and organizations dedicated to exploring new approaches to today's ecological, social, and economic problems  approaches that respect and protect ecological and cultural diversity while expanding international dialogue and exchange. The IAL will provide a forum for cross-cultural support and collaboration, and has the potential to be a united and powerful force for positive change, internationally.

The full ticket price includes a small donation to support the running costs of starting the IAL as well as membership dues to the IAL for 2015.
