Building Positive Alternatives

While critique and protest are crucial we must also begin to build the world in which we want to live -- a world based on cooperation, fairness and a deep respect for our planet. 

Global Exchange believes there are positive alternatives germinating all around the country and world for a new, local green economy to replace destructive corporate globalization. We believe the local, green economy can work to activate local talent and local materials, and positively impact the Earth. We can show the way by doing fair trade, providing a platform for green ideas and social justice, and participating in local initiatives to change local economies and societies.
