Helena Norberg-Hodge “Everything Works Better Locally”

Playing for Team Human today, author, filmmaker, and founder & director of Local Futures, Helena Norberg-Hodge.

Norberg-Hodge joins Team Human to discuss how globalisation doesn’t make things more efficient, and how localism can work to serve real people and real places.

In his opening monologue, Rushkoff remembers his friend, the late Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020), and reflects on the way television media is warping our perception of the current coronavirus crisis.
