reverse the globalization process by encouraging ideas and activities which
revitalize local economies and communities, and ensure long term ecological
"We believe that the creation of a more equitable economic order will
require new international agreements that place the needs of people, local
economies and the natural world ahead of the interest of corporations."
They also speak about the "wisdom" of nature. What the heck is that? What

corporations" mean??
