All our most pressing crises are connected. And they have their roots in an economy dominated by global corporations. We need structural change.
Rebuilding local economies is a solution-multiplier ‒ reducing our ecological footprint while simultaneously increasing our social and economic well-being. Want to help build the movement? Join us for a day of cutting-edge discussion, debate and cultural exchange with inspirational speakers from around the world. Be part of the launch of the IAL, a new forum for global collaboration to support place-based solutions on a planetary scale.
