Who We Are

We believe the world urgently needs a new narrative and that the commons represents a 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.


Sophie Bloemen is based in Amsterdam and writes, speaks, and organises on the sharing of knowledge, the commons and new narratives for Europe.
