  • Natural commoning: land and ‘wild commons’

    If there are people whose subsistence is threatened, support them – join Survival International.

    Buy FairTrade: genuine fairtrade supports mixed agriculture, actual communities and cooperative organisation at local and international levels; organise a Fairtrade Town.

    Wild ‘commons’ are generally not commoned. We might be able to collect wild food now, but what about the future? Join and support organisations that campaign for and experiment with commoned regulation of ‘wild’ resources: atmosphere, ocean and river, minerals, genetic material, energy stored in natural materials and wild systems.

    Bring commodity land into enduring common ownership and construct commons of housing and land use: community land trusts.

    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.
