“What can I do?” Localisation Action Guide

 “What can I do?” In the face of mounting social and ecological crises, this is the big question that plagues anyone concerned with the wellbeing of people and planet.

For the localizers among us, the question is arguably even bigger: How can we – as individuals and small communities – go up against the global techno-economic juggernaut?

Local Futures are delighted to present an answer. 146 answers, to be exact. Introducing the Localization Action Guide

The Localization Action Guide details 146 ways for individuals, communities and policymakers to make a real, hands-on difference in their local areas. It points to key resources, networks and examples to inform and inspire actions with a systemic impact, including the Transition Network!

Let’s make a difference – no waste, no plastic, a great opportunity to start changing the way we shop.

Come and enjoy buying from small scale local producers and artisan makers, and chatting to TTW.

 

Sustainability for Business & Organisations

Created by the co-organiser of the Zero 2030, these free video resources from FuturEcoLogic are aimed to help businesses and organisations think about how to work more sustainably. They focus on different aspects of sustainability, with topics already covering governance, energy and carbon reduction and water. Soon to come are waste, procurement and supply chains and travel and transport. Please share across business networks where possible – we need to form new partnerships and collaborations to build circular and doughnut economies, a better understanding of the value of our social and environmental connections.
