The Economics of Happiness Workshop and Toolkit is a do-it-yourself tool for activists and others that want to kick-start effective global-to-local action in their area or within an existing group.

The DIY workshop uses Local Futures' award winning documentary film, The Economics of Happiness”, as a springboard to discuss the broad impacts of the global economic growth economy and localization as a strategy for real systemic change.

During the day-long workshop (approximately 6.5 hours), participants are guided through a reflective process that culminates in the elaboration of a personal Global-to-Local action plan, centered around a two-pronged approach of Resistance and Renewal – Resistance to the corporate economy and Renewal on a local level, with people and planet in mind.

The EOH Workshop Toolkit is FREE of charge and can be used by anyone interested in exploring these issues with others.

The Toolkit consists of a detailed workshop guide, The Economics of Happiness documentary film, specially designed templates, and additional visual and written materials relating to the global to local debate.

If you are interested in facilitating a workshop or want more information, please write to info@localfutures.org.
