Building Communities and Surviving Together part 3

This is finally the last part of the series that began in January.

We will listen to Helena Norberg-Hodge, the world’s leading localizer famous for the movie “The Economics of Happiness,” and the next generation of practitioners and activists. And let us think about how we can develop and disseminate localization and ecovillage activities from Japan.

Finally, we will celebrate the finale and a new beginning with messages from all the speakers who took the stage in February.

What we have seen through these three months of planning is the brightness and strength of community building and community development in Japan, where so many people are trying to live hand in hand, connected by love and trust, while staying close to their communities.

The people who come together for this project are people who are ahead of the time and are developing grounded activities in various regions all over Japan

I can’t tell you how many people have been encouraged by this, and in response, we at GEN-Japan are trying to firmly nurture this platform.

Let’s gather our wisdom and strength, and together, from Japan and connected to the world, let’s bring back to our feet a society where we can live a truly human life!
