Planet Local is our web series showcasing inspiring localization initiatives from around the world. The series highlights diverse examples of localization in action in such areas as community renewable energy, local food and farming, local economy, eco-villages, alternative education, radical democracy, the local commons, and more.
Planet Local demonstrates that the movement for localization is broader and more diverse than many people realize, manifesting as a powerful mosaic of small-scale solutions happening on a planet-wide scale. The series aims to inspire a politics of hope, grounded in actual existing projects that too often go unnoticed by the mainstream media.
Check out our latest Planet Local Initiatives:
- Sweden, The Hoffice Movement
- Bolivia, La Casa De Los Ningunos (The Nobodies’ House)
- Australia, Food Swapping and The Fitzroy Urban Harvest
Planet Local provides tangible proof that localization is already sprouting up all around us – out of the cracks of a faltering global economy – in communities from every corner of our sacred planet.
