The Economics of Happiness The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions.  As governments and big business continue to push for “growth” in the form of increased global trade, we’re seeing an increase in climate chaos, senseless war, fundamentalism, financial volatility, income inequality, and the consolidation of corporate power.  At the same time, people around the world are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of both trade and finance.  And, far from the old institutions of power, communities are coming together to re-build more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.    (International Society for Ecology and Culture) Nick Vaczek

Climate Change Game

 

(Women's Community Building, 100 W. Seneca St.)

Play the Climate ChangeGame with Medard Gabel of Big Picture/Small World.  Residents, policymakers, students, and business people will have an equal opportunity to see if they can navigate the complexities of solving the global climate crisis.  Players act as leaders of governments, corporations, and as individuals as they make decisions that impact the global climate. While doing this, they learn about the options we have and what they can do to help avert climate change disaster. This simulation gets you thinking and acting from a new and empowered perspective. The game unfolds over an intense three-hour period.

Welcome: Gay Nicholson, Sustainable Tompkins
