Local & Global - The Meaning of Proximity

Lokální & globální - O smyslu blízkosti

This documentary discovers the phenomenon of localisation as a reaction to some pathologic principles of the current globalising market. On the examples from the UK it shows how short, closed cycles of matter, energy, goods, services and money decrease the impact on the environment, limit transportation and waste, use local sources and increase employment.
