AllForLocal is a framework for enhancing communities by bringing together individuals and local organizations. Our goal is to improve communities and local economies by making visible the links between people, businesses, locations, events, and everything else that makes up a community. These links are what define the community, and by revealing them, an opportunity for improving existing connections and forming new relationships is created. Currently, AllForLocal is a directory of small businesses and organizations in New York's Capital District region. Soon, the database will grow to include the other community aspects and become a rich network for the Capital District communities, and eventually others around the country. AllForLocal is the product of a dynamic team of recent RPI graduates with a passion for helping local businesses and communities. Seeing a need for a way to make information about local businesses available in a manner that is sensitive to the relationships in the community, the idea for AllForLocal was born. We see AllForLocal as a way to: 1) Help individuals find products locally and connect with the businesses in their community, 2) Help local businesses increase their visibility and communicate the strengths that make small businesses valuable, and 3) Help local economies, and consequently the national and global economies, as well as the environment by making shopping locally convenient.
