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.
