Revaluing Our Commons

Group Holding Hands

October 22
10:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT

Online event

All attendees will receive a meeting invite

Summary

 Long ago the Indigenous people understood what the commons meant. They knew that the earth and all its resources belonged to everyone. They were not owned or controlled by an individual or group. When everyone took only what they needed to survive, there was usually enough for all. The water, air, soil, animals and all things from the Earth were protected and preserved for future generations. 

 

 During the last few centuries, physical space has been increasingly quantified and commercialized, while our common goods were marginalized. Over time, we began to look at everything from a different perspective:  how much is there -- who owns it -- how can we make money from it?

 

 Today, we do not have a commons-based society. Our planet’s resources are not shared equitably nor sustainably. The challenge we now face is how to adequately govern our commons. The revaluation of our commons requires a new system for the measurement and exchange of resources. This means measuring the carrying capacity of the resources available in a region compared with the people living in that region and using this benchmark in our social planning. 

 

Join us on October 22 as EDA explores how and why to revalue our commons with these world-renowned speakers.
