From the Economics of Happiness conference
"Vikalp Sangam bahut achchha idea hai, iske saath Sankalp bhi jod deejiye"/
"Alternatives Confluence is a great idea, add Commitment to it"
So said Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche at the Economics of Happiness Conference which was held from the 14-16 March 2014, Bengaluru.
It saw an august gathering of activists, scholars, practitioners, mediapersons, and others to discuss various elements of localised economies, and practices and notions of well-being. The Vikalp Sangam website was launched there in front of several hundred people, with an impromptu song and dance performance by the audience!
