Where We Go From Here Conference – Building the Collaborative Commons
October 24-26

As a global community, we currently face many challenges. We collectively depend on shared resources including clean water, energy, a just economy, access to food and the Internet. However, these assets are threatened by economic, political, and social systems that do not support what’s best for the vast majority of people or the natural world.

VIDEO: The Promise of the Commons

The Promise of the Commons questions the orthodox opinion that only private ownership can protect the ecosystems. It discusses the thoughts and rights of people around the world and shows how landless people are protecting the common heritage of the Earth. How have they lost their basic human rights? We need a profound conversation about this.
