The global movement for the commons

Over the past two decades a global movement for the #P2P #commons has emerged. This is broadly the focus of this entire site, most explicitly in 1 Economy (making the civil economy/ solidarity economy, as a commons of commons) and 2 Commoning (#patternlanguage for commoning).


In this thread, the focus is on the movement as a further formation of #organicintellectual practice, standing in an awkward relationship with the broader development of the #PMC, and the strands of statism, collectivism and associationism in socialist organising.

There is a blog post on this topic here.

More on this to be added.

Emotions and emotional skills are pivotal.

Facilitative practice is crucial.

Commons are fundamental.
