what’s in the catalog:
The commons is rising. Looking beyond the market and state, commoners are applying their social imaginations and collective power to build a new world of possibilities.
The emerging Commonsverse can be seen in relocalized food systems and community land trusts … in racial empowerment through collective action and mutual aid … and in free and open source software, peer production, and platform cooperatives.
Commoning is helping communities to steward scarce water supplies, farmers to develop varied forms of regenerative agriculture, and artists to reclaim control of their creative lives. Ordinary people are becoming more self-reliant through time- banking and collaborative finance, care collectives and gift economies, and alternative local currencies.
In 25 thematic sections, The Commoner’s Catalog for Changemaking explores these and many other transformations through profiles of groundbreaking commons projects, books, websites, organizations, and activist innovations.
