Pioneer of the new economy movement Helena Norberg-Hodge, pictured, is a featured speaker at Hope in a Time of Crisis, a Q&A being presented by Local Futures in Mullumbimby tomorrow night (Wednesday May 3).

Helena believes that the only way to effect real change at a global and community level is  for a complete change in our economic system. This is what has been called the New Economy. Something she says is getting real traction in the US and throughout Europe.

Also on the panel are Damon Gameau, director and author of That Sugar Film, and Phillip Frazer, writer and publisher. They both bring their perspectives to the conversation led by Mandy Nolan.

Audiences are encouraged to come and participate at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Wednesday May 3 at 6.30pm.

Tickets are $20 with concession available and can be bought online at mandynolan.com.au or at the door. Proceeds go to Local Futures.
