These curated collections of activist tools are designed to provide a better understanding of the “big picture” of how the global economy impacts society and the environment. As part of Local Futures overall strategy of “education for action“, these resources can help translate understanding into activism; our wish is that they might inspire you to start or join a project for localization in your community.
