Local Living Economies: Green, Fair, and Fun

Judy Wicks, Founder, White Dog Cafe

Judy is the founder of Philadelphia’s 26 year-old White Dog Cafe and a leader in the local living economics movement. Both an entrepreneur and activist, Judy Wicks will tell her story from an early experience living with indigenous people, to starting the White Dog Cafe on the first floor of her house 26 years ago, to co-founding the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies in 2001.

Her presentation will encourage business owners, citizens, and community leaders to work cooperatively in building self-reliant local economies, a vision made urgent in these uncertain times of climate change, peak oil prices and financial crisis.
