Green, Fair, and Fun: Local Living Economies

Description: 

The Local Living Economy movement offers solutions to the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil. It envisions a decentralized global network of independent, locally owned businesses and farms that not only reduces transportation costs but also fosters meaningful relationships with customers, neighbors, and local habitat. Inspired by experiences to save and redevelop urban places and provide access to local food, this session will explore ways to build environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable communities.
