Be part of a community that shares your vision and purpose
Localists don’t wait for government, big business, or someone ‘in charge’ to do something about a broken system. They take action. They think local first to support their local business community. They look for entrepreneurial opportunities to make, grow, and serve their own community – whether its vegetables, furniture, or energy. They cooperate with other local entrepreneurs because they know they are stronger together, and that competition isn’t the answer. If this sounds like you – welcome! You are not alone!
First, we know that connecting locally is the fastest, most effective – and most fun - way to accelerate Localism. Look here to see if there are any local business networks in your area where you can connect at home. Discounts may also be available. No network near you? Fear not, we’ve got opportunities for you to join, sponsor, donate, become a local leader, and more.
Not sure you’re a Localist? We have a handy list of values! If you find yourself nodding, you’re one of us.
