Building a movement that can replace the global juggernaut with an economy that prioritizes human and planetary well-being requires work on individual, community, and policy levels.
We’ve spent years creating resources to assist with all of the above. Below you can find useful learning guides that explain why economic globalization is a root cause of so many of the crises we face, and how building local economies can offer systemic solutions to those crises.
This guide briefly describes the many costs of economic globalization – from climate change to the erosion of democracy, from the loss of livelihoods to the growth of fundamentalism and an epidemic of depression, and more.
This guide explains how shifting the economy away from the global towards the local enables communities to take more control over their own economic affairs. This not only helps build community resilience, it also acts as a solution-multiplier with environmental, social, economic and psychological benefits.
This guide walks you through the framework of ‘Big Picture Activism’ – a way to move beyond single-issue campaigning to address the root causes of the problems we face, and to implement systemic solutions.
