The Story of a World-wide Grassroots Movement for Localization

A film on how government and big business continue to push for ‘growth’ in the form of  increased global trade which results in climate chaos, senseless war, fundamentalism, financial volatility, income inequality, and the consolidation  of corporate power.  People around the world are  resisting , demanding regulation of  both trade and finance and re-building more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm-an economics of localization.

“It connects the dots between climate chaos, economic meltdown and our own personal suffering.  It presents the localization movement as a systemic alternative to corporate globalization…”J. Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self
