Events on the European Charter of the Commons

What are the Commons?
There is an urgent need to recognise that the essential elements for health and well being - water, food, land, education, health care, technology, internet, seeds, etc, - should be protected above all else for the good of all. At present these elements are being systematically sold into private ownership, losing the possibility of democratic control, rather than being valued as the Commons, each individual’s birthright to enjoy. A growing worldwide movement is taking shape to reclaim the Commons, for this and future generations, with people acting as stewards or trustees rather than owners.
