Event Description

 Join us for inspiring conversation with local and national activists, dreamers and doers who are re-imagining and bringing to life a just and sustainable world.
 
Hear from local leaders from Time Trade Circle, Charles River Watershed Alliance, The Food Project, The Franklin Park Coalition, SoJust, Make/Shift, Harbor Connections, and the Common Security Club Network.

 

The program will also feature On the Commons Senior Fellow and veteran journalist, Jay Walljasper, author of the new book, All That We Share: A Field Guide to the Commons.

 

We are living in a remarkable moment. Even as we face dire news on ecological and economic fronts, we also see communities all over the world stepping up to lay claim to a more life giving future.  Built on the recognition that we are the ones that must forge our own solutions, a multitude of efforts are emerging that share a kindred commitment to thriving community, the resilience of shared resources and collaborative governance.  Many of these efforts draw strength from reclaiming our commons - those things that belong to all of us and are the basis of our collective well being.
Co-sponsored by:  JP Green House, Somerville Climate Action, Boston Area Solidarity Economy Network, JP New Economy Transition, Boston Urban Homesteaders, Grassroots International, SoJust (Socializing for Justice), Institute for Policy Studies & Commons Security Club Network
