I feel anxious and afraid of the future.

I feel lonely and cut off from others.

I feel like I never have enough time and that my life is running away from me.

I feel like I have to run faster and faster just to stay in place.

I feel like I don’t matter to anyone.

I feel replaceable.

I feel like every aspect of my life has become commercialized, has become a product.

I feel as though I have become a product.

I feel trapped in a system that cuts me off from my humanity and my empathy.

I am tired.

I am tired of meaningless, repetitive work.

I am tired of fighting through traffic.

I am tired of feeling like I have no ability to affect my future.

I am tired of feeling alone.

I am tired of feeling inadequate.

I am tired of living in a world where economic growth means the destruction of the planet.

I long to feel deeper connections to others and the Earth.

I long for healthy, local, and trustworthy food.

I long for meaningful conversations.

I long to feel like I belong.

I long to feel the freedom to be me.

I long to feel secure and at peace.

I long to feel that there is a future for my children and grandchildren.

I long for meaningful, creative work, for a slower life, where there is time to sing, dance, and spend more time in nature.

I long to come back home to community, to Nature, to the local.

Local.

A simple concept with the potential to change the world.

The antidote to consumer capitalism.

The key to solving our seemingly endless ecological crises.

A structural path to take us back home, to community, to the natural world, and to prosperous, place-based economies.

It's called localisation.
