Description

In the face of the triple global crises – ecological, social, financial – a myriad of alternative responses have emerged, which all share the characteristic of being locally anchored and based on networks of production, exchange, and solidarity at the community level (villages, neighborhoods, cities, etc.).

We will explore various examples of this re-localization of the economy, which are proving that communities can utilize innovative strategies in job creation, management of natural resources, long-term investment, and re-invention of money through local currencies to overcome the crises of the global system and invent new paths that are, economically and ecologically, more resilient and sustainable.
