the media highlights the monoliths of the globalization
of capital like the World Trade Organization (WTO) on
a daily basis, global networks of human rights activists,
environmentalists, women's organizations, peasant associations,
trade union confederations and green business alliances
are frequently passed over by the press. However, the
hope for the future lies in this latter grassroots brand
of globalization that values quality of life over corporate
capital. In this empowering presentation, Danaher will
examine different ways that you can help democratize the
global economy by creating local economic networks that
promote fair wages, fair trade, environmental consciousness
raising, recycling, planetary stewardship, sustainability,
local cooperation, local employment and citizen empowerment.
