Our vision

To be a leading organization dedicated to research, education and grassroots advocacy for governmental legislation in support of meeting basic human needs on a sustainable basis.

EDA acknowledges a dual responsibility: to engage in the preservation and regeneration of our commons through grassroots economic democracy, and to actively support these measures through legislative policy. In essence, we recognize ourselves as advocates for economic democracy through political democracy.

Our mission

To promote the principles of economic democracy and ensure equal decision-making for sustainability to meet the needs of current and future generations and for all living things on Earth.

Modern society erased the concept of the commons from our collective memory, making it an unconscious part of our heritage as human beings. We envision a system that will restore this integrated worldview and meet the needs of humanity going forward. This is economic democracy.


Economic democracy is neither capitalism nor socialism. It’s a localized, self-reliant system of resource use that asks all people to take an active role in shaping their own community’s financial and ecological future.
