The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.

Transition Southampton and The Art House Gallery Cafe are teaming up to bring you a lovely low carbon dinner, using local produce and organic ingredients on 8th July at 7pm (food ready around 7:30pm) where we'll be ordering some delicious, specially chosen items off the menu.
