“The commons approach is perhaps our best hope as we pull our heads out of the sand and face up to the challenges of fundamentally redesigning our society with people and the planet as the primary considerations. This journal is a celebration of the commons and aims to give a broad overview of the theme as well as highlighting inspirational visions of a more commons based future.
Freerange 7 includes in-depth research into the areas of intellectual property rights, our food system and the re-claiming of cultural space through digital mapping. Some personal insights are offered into the com-mons perspective of post-earthquake Christchurch and early childhood education. This edition also includes discussions of urban public space, the emerging peer to peer economy and participatory decision making along-side more artistic treatments of the theme of the commons through poetry and imagery.”
