Local Solutions & Film Screening

Following the success of last months event, Relocalise Northern Rivers presents a screening of Local Futures film The Power of Local, the companion film to Closer to Home.

The Power of Local
Saturday 27 July

While Closer to Home raises high level awareness of how the global system impacts our individual lives, The Power of Local brings the good news of the vast array of localisation efforts happening around the world. Thirty examples of localisation in action from five continents are featured, all initiated by people working to create healthy and fair local economies, communities and food systems.

After the film, we will facilitate a community discussion to explore how we can implement some of the inspiring examples from the film in this region.  We are keen to hear all your ideas and we've got great plans for how to breathe life into them all.

Light refreshment included.

2:30pm to 5pm, Saturday 27th July 2024
Price: $10 AUD (kids free)
Byron Community Centre

Book Tickets

July's Power of Local is an interactive event.

At last months gathering you told us there is energy to explore inspiring examples, adding to what is already happening in our region and what we could do better. We are keen to collate all ideas and have ambitious plans of how to breathe life into them all to create the region we all really dream of.

Relocalise Northern Rivers

Relocalise seeks to engage the communities of the Northern Rivers to increase the economic resilience and self-sufficiency of our region for a more prosperous future.
From this overarching goal, we examine many of the challenges faced by our economy and consider what prosperity would look like for this region. Specifically, we focus on the main features of a local economy, e.g., food security, affordable housing, energy security, transport, business investment, health and wellbeing, and business mentoring.

We'd love your help with envisioning & realising our goals.
Join us at our next gathering!

Why Relocalise? 

Once upon a time, this region had a very localised economy, having grown much of the food we consumed here. The region was dotted with farms and small businesses that provided food and employment for the population.  It wasn't all perfect, but this region used to have far greater independence from the global trading economy than we do now.

Let's relocalise our community.  As times get tougher and job opportunities harder to come by, we're needing community cohesion and collaboration now more than ever.  Together we can make all sorts of dreams come to life.

Meeting the Challenges
We are building on Enriching Byron’s Local Economy as part of the Localisation Weekend 2023, in which participants workshopped tailored exercises lead by Michael Shuman. Specifically geared towards the economics of our local economy, we considered what we could collectively do to help strengthen, support, sustain and develop a more prosperous future for our region. The event was organised by Local Futures & Byron Local Pegs (join) and hosted by The Farm. Following on from our localisation workshops, participants keep the discussion going through weekly online meetings and monthly in person gatherings.
