Oct20FriEconomics of Happiness 2017 ConferenceOct 20 – Oct 21 (all-day)
Join us as we explore the creation of vibrant, local economies with a radically different paradigm—a paradigm that focuses on meeting real human and ecological needs through our ties to community and nature – through an ‘economics of happiness’.
We’re gathering internationally recognized leaders from the localization movement together with local leaders and activists for two days of plenary talks, panel discussions, workshops and tours on the global-to-local theme.
- Helena Norberg-Hodge, director of Ancient Futures and the Economics of Happiness
- Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics and The Ascent of Humanity
- Michael Shuman, author of Local Dollars, Local Sense and a founding board member of BALLE—The Business Alliance for Local Living Economies.
- Native American Artist-in Resistance Corwin Clairmont
- Anthony Flaccavento, director of SCALE—Sequestering Carbon, Accelerating Local Economies
- Tish O’Dell from the Ohio Community Rights Network.
- With a special presentation by the World House Choir for our closing session.
The event is co-sponsored by the local, 76-year old Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions, which is working to establish local and regional equitable economies through the lens of community, and Local Futures, a pioneer of the new economy movement, dedicated to the renewal of community, ecological health and local economies worldwide.

Nov4SatProphecy of the Seventh Fire: choosing the path that is greenMahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Nov 4 (all-day)
37th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures
In the folklore of the Anishinaabe peoples of North America, the Prophecy of the Seventh Fire predicts that there will come a time when we must choose between two paths. One path will be green and lush. The other will be well worn but scorched, and walking it will cut our feet.
Winona LaDuke—activist, community economist, author, and member of the Ojibwe Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples—says that now is that time. During last year’s Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, LaDuke called for us to make the right choice. In a message to the Water Protectors she said, “We are not just fighting against something, but clearly and decidedly walking with open eyes and hearts down the path that is green.”
Tickets will go on sale on June 8th at 12 noon.
$40 tickets include the keynote address and panel discussion (1:00 – 5:00 pm)
$150 tickets include the afternoon’s event plus an evening reception at Crissey Farm in Great Barrington with a dinner menu featuring indigenous ingredients.
