Re>Think Local is a nonprofit collaborative of locally owned independent businesses, artists, farmers, and nonprofits working to co-create a better Hudson Valley: vibrant, sustainable, locally rooted and human scale, with equal concern for people, planet, and prosperity.Through networking events, conferences and educational workshops, and region-wide research, promotion, and conversation, Re>Think Local seeks to:
- strengthen locally owned independent businesses and help them improve their “triple bottom line” (community well-being, a healthy environment, and financial profit)
- raise public awareness about localism and encourage residents and businesses to spend more on local independents; and
- influence public policy in support of place-based, sustainable economic development, within a new economic paradigm: a global network of cooperatively interlinked local economies, providing prosperity for all.
