"Think global, act local" urges people to consider the health of the entire planet and to take action in their own communities and cities. Long before governments began enforcing environmental laws, individuals were coming together to protect habitats and the organisms that live within them. These efforts are referred to as grassroots efforts. They occur on a local level and are primarily run by volunteers and helpers.
This stands for a new model of globalisation and it means that we should be concerned in the meaning of interested about what´s going on globally, but we as individuals should be aware of the fact that we can make great differences in our nearest circle.
With every single decision about what you buy where has a huge global economic influence. In this way you can be a part of the global economic development.
