International Alliance for Localization – Strengthening Local Culture, Economy, and Knowledge
Join us for a conversation with Bayo Akomolafe and Manish Jain – two of the founders of the International Alliance for Localization: a new forum for global collaboration to support place-based solutions on a planetary scale. The IAL is a network of individuals and organizations dedicated to exploring new approaches to today’s ecological, social, and economic crises – approaches that respect and protect cultural and ecological diversity while expanding international dialogue and exchange.
This short film provides a framework: Localization for People and the Earth.
Share ideas and local efforts for building community across the city, region, nation and connect globally. Meet Stephanie Rearick and Chris Petit ofThe Mutual Aid Network: a cooperative designed to pool and steward value and reward good work with cooperative economic tools such as timebanking, business-to-business mutual credit, and cooperative saving, lending, and investment.
Bring your lunch, your experiences, your ideas and your questions for a provocative and inspiring conversation!
