Could Chicago be the first city to create a Chamber of Commons?

“At Cooperation 2015, Michel Bauwens introduced the idea that we should create a Chamber of Commons to protect the commons sort of like the Chamber of Commerce protects business. Here are some rough notes on the idea. We will be discussing these ideas at a On the Table hosted by Sally Duros and Terry Edlin, Tuesday, May 12.

That day and evening, thousands of Chicago-area residents – from Alsip to Zion – will pull up a chair at gatherings to discuss the future of our communities while sharing a meal together. The Chamber of Commons discussion at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square will be one of thousands of locations across the Chicago region hosting similar events where community residents from all ages and backgrounds will come together to put real issues and solutions “on the table” and share their commitments to helping shape our collective future.”

Here are the details, please come out and join the discussion:Tuesday, May 12 / Time: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM / Location: Red Lion Lincoln Square
