Commons Network works with activists, thinkers and policy makers to tell stories, build networks and influence policies to support commoners and defend the commons.

 

WHO WE ARE

We believe the EU can facilitate the commons and be a partner to commoners. We believe the world urgently needs a new narrative and that the commons represents the socially and economically sustainable paradigm for this. We believe communities, cities and regions, rather than nation-states, are the backbone of the new translocal consciousness.
