“Building Local Living Economies: Economic, Community & Environmental Prosperity”
Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE) will host its national conference from May 30 to June 1, 2003 (in conjunction with the Oregon Sustainability Conference May 29-31) at Portland State University – Portland, Oregon
Family farms, independent businesses, community newspapers, artists, and eco-systems that once flourished in many communities are now disappearing. However, local residents and business owners have the power to revitalize the unique character of our communities. Join local business alliances from across the country that are working together to equitably increase prosperity, strengthen community, and ensure a healthy environment. Conference participants will include visionary authors, independent business owners, community and economic development professionals, government officials, and community citizens. Participants will be instrumental in shaping tangible ideas and actions for building local living economies.
