An event jointly organised by the Green Party and the School of Commoning

Silke Helfrich, co-editor of The Wealth of the Commons’ A world beyond Market and State, engages with activists, academics, business people and politicians from around the world to explain why the commons is important for our time.

In her words: “The commons is about people, as active participants, co-owners and citizens in their communities, people with relationships of responsibility toward each other and the resources that we all share together.”

We are poised between an old world that no longer works and a new one struggling to be born. Surrounded by centralized hierarchies on the one hand and predatory markets on the other, people around the world are searching for alternatives. The commons is one of them. And the commons gain momentum. Everywhere.”

Come to this event in our series of Meetings with Remarkable Commoners, a unique opportunity to meet Silke Helfrich, and find out how the commons can be relevant in your life, in your community and in the world.
