Overview

Local Living Economies

Online platforms generally offer a basic membership which all investors receive at the time of registration on the binary options online trading platform.

The Local Economies Project subscribes to an innovative approach to sustainable economic development known as Local Living Economies. Local ownership of business and import substitution, to the greatest degree possible, are the guiding principals of local living economies. Each community has the opportunity to build networks of innovative and independent businesses that are committed to the health and wealth of their particular place. These networks are also connected to like-minded groups regionally, nationally and globally to engage in fair trade and spread best practices. Ultimately, local living economies allow cities and towns of every size and political stripe to share their successes in growing community assets like sustainable agriculture, green building, energy efficiency, community capital, and local manufacturing.

Local Economies Project

We envision a global system of human-scale, interconnected local economies that function in harmony with local ecosystems, meet the basic needs of all people, support just and democratic societies, and foster community life.  Our initial work is focused on the Hudson Valley of New York State, where we hope to pilot projects that can be replicated in other parts of the county.

Mission

It is a primary objective of the Local Economies Project to identify and support replicable models for local economic and community development, focusing on the farmers and food-related businesses that are the cornerstone of a truly sustainable, regional food system.
