Ancient futures : learning from Ladakh by Helena Norberg-Hodge( Book )

39 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ladakh, or 'Little Tibet', is a wildly beautiful desert land up in the Western Himalayas. It is a place of few resources and an extreme climate. Yet for more than a thousand years, it has been home to a thriving culture. Traditions of frugality and cooperation, coupled with an intimate and location-specific knowledge of the environment, enabled the Ladakhis not only to survive, but to prosper. Everyone had enough to eat; families and communities were strong; the status of women was high. Then came 'development'. Now in the modern sector one finds pollution and divisiveness, inflation and unemployment, intolerance and greed. Centuries of ecological balance and social harmony are under threat from pressures of Western consumerism. Ancient Futures is much more than a book about Ladakh. Passionately argued, it raises important questions about the whole notion of progress, and explores the root causes of the malaise of industrial society. At the same time, the story of Ladakh serves as a source of inspiration for our own future. It shows us that another way is possible, and points to some of the first steps towards kinder, gentler patterns of living
Bringing the food economy home : local alternatives to global agribusiness by Helena Norberg-Hodge( Book )

Norberg-Hodge, Todd Merrifield, and Steven Gorelick of the International Society for Ecology and Culture discuss how a shift towards local food economies would protect and rebuild the agricultural diversity that has been lost in the current specialized, capital intensive, technology-based global environment. Coverage includes the history of this change in emphasis from local to global; the ecology of food marketing and production; food and health, the economy, and the community; food security; and changing direction -- [source inconnue]

The economics of happiness by Helena Norberg-Hodge( Visual )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and German and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary film about economic localization, a powerful strategy that can help heal our world from crisis -- our ecosystems, our societies, and ourselves. "The Economic 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."--Container

Schooling the world : the white man's last burden by Carol Black( Visual )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it? You would change the way it educates its children. The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a 'better' life for indigenous children. But is this true? What really happens when we replace a traditional culture's way of learning and understanding the world with our own? Beautifully shot on location in the Buddhist culture of Ladakh in the northern Indian Himalayas, [the film] takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures."--Container

Paradise with side effects( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two women from Ladakh, a remote region in the Himalayas, visit London on a "reality tour" with Helena Norberg-Hodge to see what life in the West is really like. The homelessness, old age homes and massive garbage dumps they encounter contrast sharply with the idealized media and advertising images of the West. Helena Norberg-Hodge has been working with the women in Ladakh for 30 years -- she and Dolma founded the Women's Alliance of Ladakh which works locally for sustainable development and preserving Ladakhi culture -- and her organization, the International Society for Ecology and Culture runs a educational center in the area, and leading the reverse "reality tours" with Westerners coming to the small farms
