With a mission of creating prosperity for all, the Localist movement works to build better economies with justice at its center. This training will look at the most energized issues in the Localist movement, and cover challenges, emerging trends, and strategies for strengthening the economic system in six different areas:

  • Finance for resilient local economies
  • Ecosystems for community entrepreneurship
  • Leadership development for a new economy
  • A Localist policy agenda
  • The new food economy
  • The future of ownership

This program is for those who want to work together to form new ideas, inspirations and tools to be more sustainable, plus overcome challenges associated with creating a new economy.  During this immersive experience, leaders will share innovative ideas to build up localist efforts in local communities that will provide the ‘fuel’ needed to bolster work at home.
