OVERVIEW

Description

BALLE equips entrepreneurs with tools and strategies for local success, and we provide the national forum for the most visionary local economy leaders and funders to connect, build their capacity and innovate. Within a generation, we envision a global system of human-scale, interconnected local economies that function in harmony with local ecosystems to meet the basic needs of all people, support just and democratic societies, and foster joyful community life.

By connecting leaders, spreading solutions, and attracting investment toward local economies, BALLE advances the Localist Movement to create real prosperity for all.

Real prosperity begins at the local level with entrepreneurs who are re-imagining their industries, funders who are investing in local economies, and leaders who can mobilize on a broad scale. Together, we can — and will — create a stronger, more resilient, and fair economy. Join us.
