Footage from the Economics of Happiness Conference 2013, hosted by the International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC) in Byron Bay Australia, March 15-17.
This session, chaired by Mick O'Regan, features, from left to right, Helena Norberg-Hodge (Australia), Adebayo Akomolafe (Nigeria), Manish Jain (India), and Michael Shuman (USA). It addressed some of the thornier issues within the localization movement, including the role of high technology, 'fair trade', micro-credit, local food as 'elitist', and more.
