The global local movement

In Scotland, we use the phrase community empowerment to describe what others call localisation. And many communities who have been on that journey, have chosen to come together with other, like minded communities to form networks to share their knowledge and experiences. But in the main, with some notable exceptions, we have restricted those networks to within Scotland. It’s worth remembering that a global movement exists which is focused on localisation. Next week sees the start of a week-long celebration leading up to World Localisation Day. The programme is jam packed with talks from the biggest names in this global movement.
