Local Futures

Local Futures, founded by Helena Norberg-Hodge, is a not-for-profit organisation based in Australia. There focus is on restoring local economies. By contributing to a local economy we can "restore ecological, social and spiritual wellbeing." Their website includes toolkits, webinars, workshops, etc. Helena hosts a podcast as well where she speaks to some amazing people such as Charles Eisenstein, Vandana Shiva, Gabor Mate, Ian McGilchrist and others.

You can watch the film entitled Planet Local: A Quite Revolution or host a community screening. There is even a Discussion Guide to help you and your local community work through the ideas in the film.

Helena also invites people to host Local Food Feast during the month of June to celebrate World Localization Day. Invite your friends, family and community over for a locally-sourced lunch or dinner! You might be surprised at all the local products you can find and forage in your area. You can register to be part of the Local Food Feasts on her website.

I hope you enjoy all the ideas and resources as much as I have - N x
