So much of the news we read is discouraging. But people everywhere are working at home and in their communities toward happier, more local futures.
Planet Local aims to bring us all inspiration by highlighting diverse examples of localization in action in such areas as community renewable energy, local food and farming, local banking, eco-villages, alternative education, community rights, and more. It 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.
Please check out Planet Local on Medium to read longer stories about these initiatives and see lots of beautiful photographs!
If you have a localization story or initiative to suggest for this series, please email us at [email protected].
