We invite you to Turkey, to learn and experience new holistic
economy with one of the pioneers of the ‘new economy’ movement in
the world! Just how localised should we strive to be? What strategies
can be employed to overcome the entrenched power of big business,
big banks, and big government? How can people be motivated to
embrace hands-on efforts at resistance and renewal?
This workshop will examine the personal, social, ecological, and economic
benefits of shifting direction away from the globalising economic path
pushed by big business and government, towards more diverse, localised,
and ecological economies rooted to place. We will be looking at the need
for both policy level changes, as well community-based, grassroots
Our approach will be very broad and holistic, and will consider a range of
issues from the perspective of both the global North and South. Making use
of lectures, interactive dialogue, documentary films, and participatory
experiential exercises, we will explore such themes as:
Program Content:
• Globalisation, climate change and peak oil
• The roots of racial, ethnic, and religious conflict
• Celebrity culture, personal identity and self-esteem
• Redefining prosperity and progress
• Economic revitalisation, both urban and rural
• Business alliances for local economies
• Why local food means global prosperity
• Voluntary simplicity and other alternatives to consumerism
• Healthcare in a life-based economy
• The spiritual and psychological importance of connecting to nature and community
