Event description
A festival of cutting-edge ideas and inspiration

About this Event

The goal of this 3-day ideas festival is to explore and explain how we can shift direction—from a single globalized market towards economies that support renewal, resilience and greater human and planetary wellbeing. This gathering will emphasize the systemic root cause of our many interconnected ecological, social and economic crises, and identify key strategic shifts towards economic localization that can solve them.

From food, land, water and human settlements, to businesses, knowledge systems, innovation, production and consumption, this festival focuses on translating understanding into action.

Within this context, the 2020 Conference has three key themes:

  • Understanding the dominant economic system and global market
  • and its impact on democracy and local economies
  • Showcasing and amplifying strategies for reclaiming local economies for the benefit of people and planet
  • Stories of success - challenging corporate domination of national, regional and local economies

Confirmed invited speakers so far include: David Suzuki, Charles Eistenstein, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Damon Gameau (“2040”), Erfan Daliri (NewKind Festival). More fantastic guest speakers are currently being confirmed.
