LOCAL TRADE ZONE serves ALL Humans Earth-wide!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is a Human Social project, developed and maintained by a privately owned and operated Socially-Committed Enterprise, LOCAL TRADE TECHNOLOGIES.
This project is founded and managed according to Universal Human Values.
This website, http://LocalTradeZone.com , is a key component of the LOCAL TRADE ZONE project, and serves as its main nexus - to access and contribute to project resources.
Humans AND entities can benefit from this project!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is Human-centric, by design and Social Commitment. However, it is impossible to address Universal Human Issues, without involving or engaging non-Human entities, such as organizations, and enterprises.
Empowering and Synergizing Consistent Universal Humanity Earth-wide!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is committed to advocating and empowering compassionate Universal Social Reform World-wide - through LAWFUL peaceful assembly, and socially innovative International Human collaboration.
Accessing Tools for Universal Justice requires NO payment!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is inclusive, by design and mandate. The costs of maintaining and growing this project ARE substantial, but we extend our services and resources to ALL Humans - without requiring any payment or paid subscriptions.
Global Humanity is in the midst of an Existential Crisis!
As a self-enriching minority of powerful capitalists scramble to hord and extract our remaining non-renewable resources, the vast majority of Humans World-wide face unavoidable Climate Crisis and unprecedented Social devastation.
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is a sincere, considered response to this crisis of Humanity.
There is no time to waste in bringing Universal Social Justice to ALL Communities around Our World. This project is designed with an appropriate sense of urgency and reality to help do so.
Innovative Enterprising Socialists who Value Citizen Democracy!
It takes a unique blend of "out of the box" lateral thinking, diverse technical experience, and genuine commitment to Social Justice, to create a project like LOCAL TRADE ZONE.
The founders of this project have worked in high level technical and social venues since the mid-seventies (that's 1970s). They formed LOCAL TRADE TECHNOLOGIES specifically to pursue development of projects of Human Social Importance - like this one.
Do YOU remember The Seventies?
Chances are, the average visitor to LOCAL TRADE ZONE was not even born in the 1970s, but it is important to note that the values embodied in this project were already incubating in the founders' hearts and minds over 40 years ago - long before personal computers, "smart phones", and the Internet even existed!
This project lives in Hearts and Minds, Earth-wide!
As a Human Concept, LOCAL TRADE ZONE transcends geography.
From a practical physical reality, the key components of this project can be found in various locations across North America.
Our team is as Organic as our project!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE does not benefit from the usual freedoms enjoyed by big financial interests. We struggle to keep our project going daily, and strategically adapt to our available resources on an ongoing basis.
The founders of this project constitute the core development and maintenance team. As financial contributions are made to our project, we expand our team accordingly.
We also welcome and enlist the aid of Conscientious Volunteers - willing to help this project succeed through their individual contributions of time and effort.
This project RELIES on YOUR Personal Contributions and Support!
The founders of LOCAL TRADE ZONE volunteer ALL their time and financial resources to maintaining and growing the project.
But THIS IS NOT ENOUGH to sustain the growing costs of hosting and managing this endeavour - let alone, keep up with the pace of the issues we try to address daily.
This project is designed to be free of corporate advertising, and relies solely on financial contributions by Human visitors, and kindred non-commercial Social Organizations.
Additionally, we offer various goods and services to our visitors, the net proceeds of which, are applied directly to the financial support of ths project.
