York Central Co-Owned (YoCo) is a grassroots regeneration project in York, UK, that aims to create a thriving neighborhood where citizens take care of their environment and each other. Well-being and happiness are designed into YoCo: buildings are low carbon and well designed, the earth is nurtured, and spaces are accessible to all. The goal is to reshape the economy into one that is fair and locally-rooted, with people and nature at the center. Find out more from YoCo’s website, and watch YoCo’s World Localization Day video.
