Action Strategies for Commons Leaders Around the Globe

Trust emergent wisdom, animate the commons co-creatively, and more

| by On the Commons Team

What can we do to build our capacity and that of other commons catalysts?

At the recent Commons Solutions Lab, we brainstormed these strategies, and many more, during a fun, co-creative exercise led by Paula Manley of The Oregon Commons. We used a giant “sticky wall” to organize our responses to the question above, and it turned out to be an incredibly juicy way to get to know each other.

What we discovered as we went back-and-forth over how to group our emergent ideas is that we need a range of strategies to build the commons movement—a range that will help us work better together, and independently.

We plan to keep working on the list of strategies, which you can download using the link below, at future gatherings.
