About the Event
After COVID-19, we can return to stressful disconnected lives and climate catastrophe or we can slow down, scale down and rebuild our connections to each other and to the Earth.
A new human story founded on the principles of connection and diversity is emerging. It's called: Localization
Localization simply means shortening the distance between producers and consumers wherever possible. It is about ensuring that business conforms to the needs of democracy and genuine sustainability. For individuals it means emphasizing what makes life meaningful: connection with others and with the natural world.
