The outrage to the current economic and political situation in Spain has resulted in strong popular reactions, collective acts of condemnation, and even violence. Against the current state of dependence of the Spanish people from global financial markets, a new tendency is emerging: to develop an independent localized economy based on small enterprise aimed at self-sustainability.
The protagonists of this new tendency are offering an alternative through their own personal example, through a direct involvement, which sees itself as opposed to western society desire of delegation. This phenomenon of urban exodus suggests a move back to the roots of a less financially oriented economy of sustainability which tries to address the very root of the contemporary problem, recovering lost values and losing global values, which might have created the very impasse of the present.​​​​​​​
