Voices of Hope in a Time of Crisis
10 am - 6 pm (doors open at 9:15)
Climate chaos, world conflict, species extinction, income inequality, financial insecurity
All our most pressing crises are connected. And they have their roots in an economy dominated by global corporations. We need structural change.
Rebuilding local economies is a solution-multiplier reducing our ecological footprint while simultaneously increasing our social and economic well-being. Want to help build the movement? Join us for a day of cutting-edge discussion, debate and cultural exchange with inspirational speakers from around the world. Be part of the launch of the IAL, a new forum for global collaboration to support place-based solutions on a planetary scale.
