Small is Beautiful - Leopold Kohr

Small is Beautiful - Leopold Kohr

Globalisation seems to have reached its limits. An economic crisis, crashing financial empires and the consequences of climate change threaten the globalised world. But does this automatically mean we're doomed to collapse? Shouldn't we question the dogma of constant growth? Couldn't a new modesty in lifestyle also offer us new perspectives? Questions like the ones above where asked already 50 years ago by an Austrian-born economistand political scientist, originating from Oberndorf in Salzburg: Professor Leopold Kohr.

The challenges the world is facing today make Kohrs ideas more topical than ever. Discussions about smaller entities, regionality and a new sense of humility as alternatives to globalisation in economics, politics and society are in the air. Does mankind find the way back to human measure after years of gigantism?

The documentation shows how the ideas of Kohr took their journey round the world, left their mark on many countries and regions and finally arrived back in Salzburg in the form of the cultural association Tauriska and the Leopold-Kohr-Academy.
