LOCAL: A Story Of Hope


LOCAL: A Story Of Hope, examines the root causes of our social and environmental crises - the global economy - and proposes a call to action: “re-regulate the big and global – rebuild the small and local”. The controversial message is delivered by three strong voices - Helena Norberg-Hodge (Director, Local Futures), Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film, 2040) and Ella Noah Bancroft (indigenous storyteller).

Watch the empowering video-launch discussion with Damon Gameau, Ella Bancroft, Helena Norberg-Hodge and Satish Kumar in Part 2 above.

The video was made by Local Futures in collaboration with film maker Damon Gameau.
