New Economy Models: The Victory of the Commons

New Economy Models: The Victory of the Commons

A new world based on community and collaboration is closer than you think. We can steward resources together and in fact, millions of people are doing just that.  This week, author and activist David Bollier, co-founder of the Commons Strategy Group, explains what it means to Think Like A Commoner.

Then, two activists engaged in commons projects right now, talk about two very distinct but complementary Commons strategies — one, digital in Barcelona; the other, rural in Mozambique. Graça Samo is the director of the Global March of Women and Mayo Fuster is on the faculty of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and a researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
