Commoning Flourishes Around the Globe

A list of commons-based efforts from Zaragoza to Berlin and everywhere in between

Last month we had the opportunity to attend the Economics and the Commons Conference in Berlin, where commoners from around the globe gathered to discuss the commons as a worldview and practical approach for addressing today’s most pressing problems.

At the conference we were inspired by the sheer number of people working to protect and advance the commons all around the globe, and we would like to highlight the breadth of the commons movement here.

The following list of networks, organizations, initiatives, and groups are working to build community and create a better future for us all. Their efforts are advancing the commons approach, a worldview and set of practical tools that can help protect and promote all that we share.

By no means is this a complete list, and we invite you to help us build it! Please contact us at info@onthecommons.org with your suggestions. Don’t forget to include website URLs when available.
