We are pleased to present the Gaia Education Glocalisers Webinar Series!

Gaia Education works to build capacity on whole systems design, unleashing the emergence of local solutions to global challenges. We nurture communities of learning where participants can develop meaningful, actionable knowledge both personally and socially.

Empowered by the skills and knowledge acquired throughout their learning and combining them to their own personal journey, our trainers weave their own thread into the fabric of Gaia Education’s world work.

Transitioning from Global to Local Economies in the 21st Century

With a particular focus on food and farming, Helena will be looking at the insane waste and energy consumption in the global economy, and the systemic benefits of building more diversified, self-reliant economies. She will also be discussing the psychological and spiritual benefits of more localised economies, which reweave our connections to one another and to the living world.

Helena Norberg-Hodge is a pioneer of the local economy movement. Through writing and public lectures, she has been promoting an economics of personal, social and ecological well-being for four decades. She is a widely respected analyst of the impact of the global economy and international development on local communities, local economies, and personal identity, and is a leading proponent of ‘localisation’, or decentralisation, as a means of countering those impacts. For this work she was awarded the prestigious Goi Peace prize in 2012 and Arthur Morgan award in 2017.
Since 1975, she has worked with the people of Ladakh, or “Little Tibet”, to find ways of enabling their culture to meet the modern world without sacrificing social and ecological values.  For these efforts she was awarded the Right Livelihood Award, or ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’.
Helena’s seminal book, Ancient Futures has been described as “an inspirational classic,” offering guidelines for a better future. Together with the film of the same title, it has been translated into more than 40 languages, and sold about half a million copies. She is also the producer and co-director of the award-winning film, The Economics of Happiness.  Helena has written numerous articles, essays, and book chapters, and is the co-author of two groundbreaking  books on food and farming: Bringing the Food Economy Home and From the Ground Up: Rethinking Industrial Agriculture.
Helena has lectured at numerous universities including Oxford, Harvard, Melbourne, Tokyo, Stockholm, Munich and Berkeley, and taught regularly at Schumacher College. She appeared in media worldwide, including MSNBC, The London Times, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Guardian.
Helena is the founder/director of Local Futures and The International Alliance for Localization (IAL).  She is also a founding member of the International Commission on the Future of Food and Agriculture, the International Forum on Globalization and the Global Ecovillage Network.
