The Power of Going Local

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Local movements are transforming the way we think about economic development. We will explore the connection between Local First campaigns and their potential to pollinate cooperative enterprises through marketing and branding strategies. We will learn creative ways to build local and coop loyalty by partnering with a localist movement or getting one started in your community. Participants will walk away with an understanding of the connection between democratizing ownership and strong local movements and how they can benefit each other.
