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 for new, local, equitable economies to replace corporate globalization. It is these positive alternatives, which support local talent and local materials, that are building a network of inspired and motivated entrepreneurs, activists and justice-seekers. We can show that there is a way to do fair trade, provide a platform for green ideas and social justice and train young people in sustainable community development.
