The Power of the Commons – How do we create a world that is free, fair and alive?

Van: op 15 september 2019

Commons scholars and activists David Bollier and Silke Helfrich will describe how the paradigm of the commons can guide us through a post-capitalist transition. From community land trusts and platform cooperatives to open source design and beyond, commons function as trusted, self-organized systems for managing shared wealth. They can overcome many entrenched pathologies of neoliberal capitalism through social practices that honour care, collaboration, and eco-stewardship. Such strategies are increasingly vital as current systems spiral into deeper dysfunction – political gridlock, climate breakdown, precarious livelihoods, and much else. This presentation draws upon Bollier & Helfrich’s new book, 'Free Fair and Alive: The Insurgent Power of the Commons'.
