Your role in building an engaged, resilient economy starts now. BALE can provide you with the education to build and participate in localized economies that help buffer the negative impacts of a globalized economic order.
Many ideas/initiatives emerged out of the “Why Build A Local Economy” series. Now we can provide you with the education to help you bring your interest and enthusiasm into these efforts (or help you with a proposed effort you might have).
This is your invitation to get educated and improve your skills! If participating in and building a local economy is something you’d like to learn more about… or you want more detailed information, go to our Action Central site here.
