The Upside of a Down Economy: Buying Locally

Sustainability Series

Kimber Lanning

  • Founder and Executive Director, Local First Arizona
  • Small Business Owner

The economy isn't something far away that someone else is going to fix for us—we have the power to turn the economy around. Learn how your own purchasing habits can improve the local economy, create jobs, and contribute recirculating dollars for community establishments like libraries and fire departments.

Kimber Lanning is an entrepreneur and economic specialist who works to cultivate vibrant, sustainable communities and inspire a higher quality of life throughout Arizona. Lanning is actively involved in fostering cultural diversity, economic self-reliance, regional planning, and responsible growth in the greater Phoenix area.

This event is centered around the Society and Economics of Sustainability challenge areas.
