Local Prosperity Talks 2015

Gregory Heming, Municipal Councillor, District 5, Annapolis County, NS. delivered a talk and hosted a discussion on alternative options for rural economies. Mr. Heming spoke about the reality of creating a new economic narrative, one that is happening in many communities throughout the Maritimes and across Canada.

"...business-as-usual is not quite good enough. [Local economies] have begun to embrace not only ecological economics but are also exploring the long-term effect of what some economists are calling 'restorative economies'; essentially restoring land and people to a new beginning and a more equal and prosperous longer-term. future."
