Power of Community Summit
Feb 1-10, 2019
Helena Norberg-Hodge takes us to Ladakh where her incredible engagement with traditional communities started decades ago, and she describes how she experienced the breakdown of traditional support networks, and how this has sparked her passion to advocate for interconnection and a richer life. She touches on the core aspects of the global neoliberal economic system, the drivers of climate change, and inspires us to restore localisation.
