In this reflective conversation, Helena Norberg-Hodge (Director of Local Futures) speaks with political activist and author David Korten (co-founder, Yes! Magazine) and South Korean Professor of Economics Gunna Jung about economic transformation and the growing role played by local, municipal and regional governments.
How did we get here and what can we do?
David shares from decades of sharp analysis of the corporate-led global economy, while Professor Jung offers a rare glimpse of South Korea, where progressive mayors are breaking status quo and looking for paths to a new economy. This conversation took place in connection with World Localization Day, June 21, 2020. This event included a chorus of 100 voices from across the world speaking on localization, including messages from Russell Brand, Jane Goodall, Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, Joanna Macy, Adebayo Akomolafe, Manish Jain, and Pat McCabe to name a few.
