Our commons are critical to our sustainability as a world and the basis for both existing and new economies. We want to educate ourselves and each other about them. At our Dec. 3 discussion on the Commons Transition Plan from CommonsTransition.org, we discussed some ideas that would deepen our  understanding of the Commons.

We agreed that it  would be beneficial to integrate Commons-think into our analysis of opportunities and challenges to create a more just and equal society here in Chicago. This analysis would help ripen and expand the landscape fo activism here.

One idea was to research  how work around the Commons is under way in the networks and organizations we are already involved in. Part of this would be outlining an issue in a before and after way, outlining it the way we currently view it vs. a Commons-think perspective.

Join us as we bring our field study and continue our discussion of the Commons Transition here in Chicago.
