Episode Description:

Localization For People and the Earth - FJ077c

Filmed at the recent Economics of Happiness conference in Bangalore, India, this 7-minute video captures voices from both North and South pointing to the global economy as the root cause of our most serious social and environmental crises, and to economic localization as the most strategic way forward.

The film describes some of the inspiring shifts towards the local already being made, and argues that ''What we need is not a scaling up of those solutions, but a scaling out of those solutions – replication in millions'', in the words of Indian activist Kavitha Kuruganti.

The film is intended as a clarion call to people everywhere to join the growing localization movement. As Helena Norberg-Hodge says: ''We need to see ourselves as part of an enormous movement, involving hundreds of millions of people who are saying many 'yeses' – to diverse cultures, to diverse identities.''

See the film on the Local Futures website, on Vimeo or YouTube.

We hope you'll help us spread this film far and wide!
