Twelve Benefits of a Commons-Based Approach



We came across this FANTASTIC video - it is a commons documentary being produced by Kevin Hansen.  He says that this video is a step towards describing the vision of a 'third way' beyond government and business, where people can directly organise around commons they share.  

Kevin gives a great description of the 12 benefits:  Actionable, Declarative, Practical, Goodwill, Social Legitimacy, Commonsense understanding, Examples abound, Restorative sustainability, Nature is explicitly represented, Better integration across domains, Economics and Politics get re-framed in Positive ways and Rights and responsibilities for all.

This video is worth watching - and his explanation of these 12 benefits is well worth the read.
