Low-impact economy

Low-impact living is essential, but insufficient – not enough people will do it, and we live in a system that’s hostile to it. We need a low-impact economy - a ‘commons’ economy owned by us, rather than by corporations, providing the essentials of life affordably and strengthening communities. We’re partnering with two groups to help build the commons economy.

Mutual Credit Services provide free and open-sourced software, training and support for local commons groups anywhere (including mutual credit 'clubs').

Stroud Commons is a group of Stroud residents who have come together to build the commons economy in Stroud, and to document everything so that it can be implemented in other towns too.


Will you help us promote and support low-impact living and the commons economy? If you like what we do you can help us by becoming a member. Individual members get access to an ebook or online course. Organisations / businesses get a featured profile and a banner ad.

There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
