Welcome commoners to our virtual home base!

This community is a nascent social, cultural, and knowledge commons for the Commons, helping commons-builders & activists learning by doing. We're an action platform, not a place of general conversations about the commons, for which we recommend the message board

We are open to commoners around the world, who are engaged or want to engage in commons building. We define commons as "people self-organizing to co-produce & co-govern resources essential to their livelihood and/or well-being."  Here we can form groups, write blogs, start and participate in real-time chats and asynchronous conversations for collaboration. Enjoy!
