    Ep 47_ Helena Norberg-Hodge - The Economics of Happiness

    Ep 47_ Helena Norberg-Hodge - The Economics of Happiness

    Linguist, author and film-maker, Helena Norberg-Hodge.
    Helena is the founder and director of the international non-profit organisation, Local Futures, a pioneer of the new economy movement, and the creator of World Localization Day.
    Her work, spanning almost half a century, has received the support of a wide range of international figures, including Jane Goodall and HH the Dalai Lama.
     
    To provide greater context to this conversation and the work of Helena and Local Futures, we'd highly recommend watching two of Helena's films; Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh and ‘The Economics of Happiness’. Both are incredible award-winning documentaries. And a lot of conversation during this conversation was predicated on these two pieces of film.
     
    And finally, her most recent book, Local is Our Future: Steps to an Economics of Happiness, outlines how a systemic economic shift from global to local can address the world’s social, economic, ecological and spiritual crises.
