Sacred activism and being of place - Alnoor Ladha & Helena Norberg-Hodge
Political strategist, writer and activist Alnoor Ladha is in deep conversation with Helena Norberg-Hodge (Director of Local Futures), about the interdependence that arises when one is part of a place-based community. Alnoor explains in detail what sacred and holistic activism entails and how to build a movement away from nationalism and patriotism towards a localized society that is part of the natural world and aware of its ancestral history.
This conversation took place in connection with World Localization Day, June 21, 2020. This event included a chorus of 100 voices from across the world speaking on localization, including messages from Russell Brand, Jane Goodall, Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, Joanna Macy, Adebayo Akomolafe, Manish Jain, and Pat McCabe to name a few.
