As the world enters the third decade of the 21st Century, we face unprecedented challenges. Not only are we in the midst of the most serious pandemic and recession for a century, but extinction and global heating events threaten to bring changes of a speed and scale never seen in the history of human civilisation.

But what if the solution was right on our doorstep? By creating jobs, businesses, food, energy and leisure opportunities in our communities, we can start a revolution in localisation, driven by the very social fabric of networks and relationships. Localisation has the power to diminish the threat of the climate emergency, whilst building happy prosperous communities
