A two-day solutions conference focused gathering for leaders and community members engaged in accelerating a localizing movement in our region. We are working on systemic renewal in an age of climate crisis, economic injustice, and frayed democratic systems. This convening will forge new relationships and pathways toward improved localization of our economy, culture, democratic institutions, systems of energy, health and education, movements for justice, and other areas of intersection. We will learn from each other while bringing localization to the forefront of people's imagination in our work toward a more resilient planet. BALE (Building A Local Economy) is leading this session.
