Summary

More and more communities are creating new ways of living, playing, producing and working together that are less dependent on the mass marketplace and the megasystems of finance, production, and consumption. We'll shine a spotlight on some of the creative and experimental ways that people are getting together with their neighbors and others and taking the initiative to create new systems of sharing, build better neighborhoods, and strengthen their local economy and culture. Through small-scale, low-budget and DIY initiatives, groups are making an impact locally and paving the way for others to replicate their projects. We'll highlight what is working and focus on the spread of lending libraries, pop-up projects, placemaking, timebanking and skillsharing.
