We present a multiscale method for a class of problems that are locally self-similar in scales and hence do not have scale separation. Our method is based on the framework of the heterogeneous multiscale method (HMM). At each point where macroscale data is needed, we perform several small scale simulations using the microscale model, then using the results and local selfsimilarity to predict the needed data at the scale of interest. We illustrate this idea by computing the effective macroscale transport of a percolation network at the percolation threshold.
