A festival of cutting-edge ideas and inspiration
20-22 March, 2020 – Byron Bay, NSW
Presented by The Economics of Happiness / Local Futures and New Economy Network Australia (NENA)
How can we work together to create a fundamentally different economic system and a more beautiful world?
Today, as we face a seemingly endless series of crises, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. But seeing how our problems--from climate change to our personal wellbeing--are fundamentally linked to our economic system can be deeply empowering. Decades of failure by governments to adopt a big picture approach to the future have led to down-stream solutions, self-blame and epidemics of depression and anxiety. However, in recent years, many individuals and organizations involved in separate campaigns have begun to collaborate and embrace a holistic approach that moves beyond single issues. A big picture,broad analysis is beginning to build a broad, united movement for fundamental change. We owe it to ourselves and our children to join this movement for systemic change.
