A partnership working on four continents “to help advance the commons as a paradigm in diverse settings” and to catalyze and assist commons-based projects, activism, research and public education with a great variety of partners. “Our primary purpose is to help consolidate and extend the many existing commons initiatives around the world…commons offers great hope for the future because it provides practical, effective forms of governance and resource management that can address the growing failures of centralized, hierarchical institutions and the market fundamentalist order.” Principals: Michel Buawens (Chang Mai, Thailand), David Bollier (Amherst MA), Beatriz Busaniche (Buenos Aires), and Silke Helfrich (Jena, Germany).
