 Sharing Cities – Activating the Urban Commons

 

Edited by Shareable  it concerns the idea of urban ‘commoning’ and is available to download as a pdf for free.

The sharing transformation shows that it’s possible to govern ourselves, build a green economy that serves everyone, and create meaningful lives together. It also shows that we can solve the world’s biggest challenges – like poverty and global warming – by unleashing the power of collaboration.

At the core of the sharing transformation is timeless wisdom updated for today – that it’s only through sharing, cooperation, and contribution to the common good that it’s possible to create lives and a world worth having.

And to look at some of these ideas already in practice here in the UK we are including the George Monbiot article Mutually Assured Salvation, describing community led projects in Barking and Dagenham.
