July 14, 2021

How do we build strong local living economies for a post-carbon world? Tune into a stimulating conversation about how to move forward. Learn about concrete steps and real-life examples, from public banking and citizen-led local investment strategies to rural and urban communities working together to build healthy regional economies that work for all.

Moderated by Anja Lyngbaek.

This event took place on June 18, 2021 as part of World Localization Day. As more people wake up to the need to localize supply chains and recover their connections to Nature and community, World Localization Day aims to galvanize the worldwide localization movement into a force for systemic change.
