Economics of Happiness| Bristol, UK
October 19, 2018 - October 21, 2018
Join us for an inspiring and eye-opening convergence of strategists, activists and innovators from all walks of life. Together we’ll share our knowledge and experience to challenge outdated ideas of ‘business as usual.
We’ll look at systemic change and the power of local initiatives to tackle global issues, beyond outdated single-issue approaches and narrow Left/Right politics. Come along to inspire and be inspired, as we learn how people like us are challenging a failing system with better, practical, replicable alternatives. You’ll meet all kinds of people, concerned with finding solutions to the crises affecting our climate, our security, our democracy, our health and mental wellbeing.
The programme is arranged with a mix of presentations, discussion forums, short films, activities and workshops to suit different learning styles. There’s something for everybody at this special event, and all of it designed to help change-makers like you get what they need to be more effective.
The conference is the 18th in Local Futures` International Economics of Happiness Conference Series. The series, which has been hailed as an antidote to anger, contraction and despair, is helping to light the fuse for a new economy in many parts of the world simultaneously.
