Are you concerned about our air, water, food, and the state of our communities?

These are our commons. They belong to us all and must be protected—not only for the health of our society, but also for each of us and future generations.

Our new e-book demonstrates how people—in their own backyards and across the globe—are rising up to reclaim and protect our commons on every scale from climate to community gardens by giving you a close look at what’s happening in the emerging commons movement. It also suggests how you can use a commons approach to help shape a healthier, safer, and more vibrant future for us all.
