Did you know there’s a blueprint for building a vibrant and sustainable local economy? Katie, our E.D., went to a conference on local economies last week and came back with some great and simple strategies for how to do it:
- Eat local
- Buy Local
- Bank Local
- Build Local
Supporting these basic building blocks along with things like localizing supply chains, sourcing local talent, advocating for supportive policies, and making space for business training and entrepreneurship (especially green jobs) together will make a more vibrant and sustainable Missoula. Where do you see yourself in that Missoula?
