This is a new section to collate our resources related to place, geography, both physical and digital (i.e. cyber-mapping, etc...)

  • We conceive of Land and Food as a Commons:
  1. Land as Commons
  2. Food as Common and Community

Steve Bosserman sees Localization occuring in four key domains:

1) affordable / green construction, 2) 100-mile agricultural production, 3) renewable / distributed energy generation 4) community governance / capacity building.

(status of this section: We have only ported the 6 first columns of our Encyclopedia, from A to G at present.)


Towards the hyperlocal

"The decisive paradigm from the age of mass production was culminating in the claim "think global - act local" - the view of international brands and enterprises, conquering markets worldwide and batteling with salesforces for the dominance in each region on a global scale.

The emerging paradigm from the coming age of connectivity shows a totally opposite point of view, expressed by individuals with the claim "think global-act hyperlocal"."

- Reinhard Knobelspies [1]
