Michael Brownlee, a member of a local group called Boulder Valley Relocalization (BVR), has two main goals for this weekend.

First, he wants locals to learn what relocalization is and why it could be a vital part of Boulder's future.

The BVR Resource Expo, to be held Saturday, Jan. 14 at CU's UMC in the Glenn Miller Ballroom, will explain how local production of food and energy can reduce the impacts of possible future energy shortages. BVR will also show movies around Boulder on Friday.

This is an article about airplanes, but it also concerns the dreams that animateprogress.
