Our Local Economy in Transition

If you’re in or around Boulder, Colorado late this month, don’t miss the Our Local Economy in Transition Conference taking place February 26th and 27th. Chelsea Green author Woody Tasch, author of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money, will be a featured speaker at the event, along with Michael Shuman of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), Nicole Foss of The Automatic Earth, and Transition Colorado’s Michael Brownlee.

Sponsored by Transition Colorado, Slow Money, Elephant Journal and others, the event focuses on Food Localization as Economic Development and takes place primarily at Boulder’s Millenium Harvest House.  Panel discussions will include Reskilling for the Challenging Times Ahead, Food Security and Access in a Chaotic Economy, Forging a Foodshed Alliance, and more. The conference also includes a premiere screening of the documentary film “The Economics of Happiness“.

From the event flyer: “The economy is on the precipice of an unprecedented transition – and this has profound implications for our local economy. This conference is an opportunity to explore how local food and farming can contribute to the resilience of our local economy, reduce our contribution to global warming, and ensure the health, well-being and self-reliance of all our citizens.”
