Think Global Act Local
“Think globally, act locally” urges people to consider the health of the entire planet and to take action in their own communities and cities. Long before governments began enforcing environmental laws, individuals were coming together to protect habitats and the organisms that live within them.
“Think Globally, Act Locally” Is now a global concept with high importance. This concept is taken into consideration by corporations, government officials, education systems, and local communities.
Warren Heaps states, “It’s really important to recognize that markets are different around the world, and company compensation programs should reflect a balance between global corporate philosophy and local practice and culture”.
It is vital that local businesses understand the culture and preferences of their potential local customers. Tweeting and Face book pages are a good means for brand recognition; however they lack the means to fully understand the cultures within their local communities.
https://mikode.net is a global local community social network, here you can find out what the culture, likes and dislikes are of each local community. The development of all the local sites is an ongoing project. These sites are built hosted and managed for free, upon request by members of Mikode.net.
Once a community site has been created members of the community are invited to post to their community site. This facilitates the creation of a local community picture that anyone can add to. Most importantly it gives a voice to those who want to address issues within their communities.
It also gives a valuable opportunity for local businesses who are members of Mikode.net to post information about their business to their locals. For businesses who do not want to spend time posting to their community sites Mikode has developed a business service at: Mikode Business Services.
