Considering the context of the present ecological and social
crisis, this book takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore
the relationship between globalism and localization. Globalism may
be viewed as a positive emergent property of globalization. The
latter depicts a worldwide economic and political system, and
arguably a worldview, that has directly increased planetary levels
of injustice, poverty, militarism, violence, and ecological
destruction. In contrast, globalism represents interconnected
systems of exchange and resourcefulness through increased
communications across innumerable global diversities. In an
economic, cultural, and political framework, localization centers
on small-scale communities placed within the immediate bioregion,
providing intimacy between the means of production and consumption,
as well as long-term security and resilience. There is an
increasing movement towards localization in order to counteract the
destruction wreaked by globalization, yet our world is deeply and
integrally immersed within a globalized reality. Within this
collection, contributors expound upon the connection between local
and global phenomenon within their respective fields including
social ecology, climate justice, ecopsychology, big history, peace
ecology, social justice, community resilience, indigenous rights,
permaculture, food justice, liberatory politics, and both
transformative and transpersonal studies.
