Left Coast Forum

Event Description

Join us at the Left Coast Forum for a panel on Building a Local Peace Economy

From Eco villages and community land trusts to worm farms and worker co-ops, people all over LA, the country, and the world are coming together to reimagine economy from the ground up – from the dominant extractive, exploitative system currently in place to a regenerative system that values people and the planet. We are hoping to explore connections and make visible local initiatives. We invite you to bring your own passions, questions, talents and resources to explore ways we can come together to co-create the beautiful world we know is possible.
