Going Local: the Solution-Multiplier (A short introduction to economic localization)

Fantastic short video from our friends at Local Futures to which we’d like to add that you can also Design Global, Manufacture Local!

Going local puts more focus on what’s really important: friends and family, community, good food, clean environment.

This 2-minute animated video from our friends at Local Futures offers a succinct and accessible intro to localization.

As the narrator explains, localisation fosters community, creates more and better jobs, reduced inequality and cuts pollution. In this way it is the perfect antidote to corporate globalisation.

In the current political climate, we’d like to note that nationalism is not in any way the same as localization, and that corporate globalisation is not in any way the same as global cooperation. As the old sustainability maxim says, think global act local!
