Many talk about climate change, but rare are those who dare to speak about its systemic, deeply-ingrained root cause.
Depression, unemployment, racism and climate change indeed seem to be interconnected through the invisible web of the power of multinational corporations.
In this interview, Helena-Norberg-Hodge explains the history behind it all. She describes with great precision the economical culture that has been destroying our planet and communities for decades, and today threatens our very own survival.
Not only that, but she offers an alternative supported by decades of evidence and ground studies, a path which she now calls localization (or decentralization).
Helena-Norberg Hodge was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 1986 and the Goi Peace Prize in 2012. In "Wisdom for a liveable planet", she was profiled as one of the eight visionaries changing the world, and The Earth Journal counted her among the world's ten most interesting environmentalists.
