Let’s celebrate World Localization Day together: #EatLocalChallenge third edition!

Once again the World Farmers Markets Coalition is glad to join Local Futures in the annual celebration of World Localization Day with the third Eat Local Challenge that will be released from 14 to 21 of June. 

What’s about? Challenging World Farmers Markets Coalition members, followers around the globe and market shoppers and visitors to purchase a meal that is 100% local!

What you have to do next is posting photos and videos (on IG or FB) of products and people at markets and farms in your local area, remembering to tag World Farmers Markets Coalition and Local Futures, and using the hashtags #EatLocalChallenge and #WorldLocalizationDay! We can’t wait to see what you find in our community!

This year we challenge you to share contents also in your own language, in order to give voice to local communities as well.

The challenge is aimed to celebrate the World Localization Day, an annual celebration convened by the international NGO Local Futures. On June 21 and throughout the month of June, in fact, Local Futures and an array of amazing Global Partners host in-person and online events to highlight localization as a strategy for change. And not least, to celebrate the many efforts and initiatives that foster ecological economies, thriving communities and healthy local food systems.

“From farmers markets and consumer-producer co-operatives to local business alliances and community finance schemes, people are reweaving the fabric of local interdependence from the ground up. Out of common sense and heartfelt intuition, they are finding innovative ways to step out of the consumer rat race to live local lives at a human pace and scale” said Helena Norberg-Hodge, Founder – Local Futures

The localization movement is growing stronger. Across the world, people are speaking out against the global economy that is playing havoc with our lives and destroying our shared planet. Simultaneously, millions of us are engaged in rebuilding healthy local economies, communities and food systems. Listen to strong voices from the movement and meet some of the many organizations that have taken part.
