Our commons are the shared wealth (material, natural, genetic, social, cultural and intellectual wealth) which we have inherited or created and must be passed on to future generations. Many of the concerns that civil society organizations are pursuing – community organisation, healthy food, clean water, clean air, environmental protection, green energy, free flow of information, social technologies, human rights and indigenous peoples’ rights – may be seen as commons.

After the Quilligan Seminars: how to bring the Commons alive in our life and work

on Thu, 05/24/2012 - 22:02
Dear supporters of the Commons, James Quilligan conducted a 12-day seminar series on the Commons, in London, May 2012. The launch event was hosted by Michael Meacher, Member of the Parliament, in the House of Commons, under the title: “Political Economy and the Inclusive Commons”. Whether you were present at the opening or not, expect to hear more about that event and what happened afterwards if you’re involved with the commons movement. Not only to hear about, but also draw on, return to, and gain strength and wisdom from it in our common work.
