On käymässä selvemmäksi koko ajan, että emme palaa tavallisiin oloihin (business as usual) lähiaikoina. Globaalin ja kansallisten talouksien on ennustettu kutistuvan muutaman seuraavan vuoden aikana ja kauemminkin.

On tärkeämpää kuin koskaan, että tulemme yksilöinä ja yhteisönä vakaimmiksi ja vastustuskykyisemmiksi valamalla itsemme syvemmin paikallisiin järjestelmiimme ja vähentämällä riippuvaisuuttamme globaaleista järjestelmästä.

Webinaarissa tutkitaan, miten yhteisöt ympäri maata muodostuvat paikallisen toiminnan taakse ja järjestäytyvät kansalaistoimintaan. Webinaarissa pohditaan myös, miten tällaista yhteisöjen verkostoa voitaisiin laajentaa ja ulottaa kansallisiin ja globaaleihin aiheisiin.

Webinaari on englanninkielinen.

Webinaarissa kysytään:

Miksi lokaalisaatio on joustavin malli kohdata lukuisia moderneja kriisejä?
Millaisin keinoin paikalliset yhteisöt saadaan järjestäytymään?
Miten erilaiset paikalliset toimijat ja verkostot voivat tehdä yhteistyötä globaaleissa aiheissa?

Tara Krishnaswamy, Citizens for Bengaluru
