A Commons Approach to the Challenges of Our Time

“When faced with the massive crises of our time, the most logical response is paralysis. What can an individual possibly do about something so massive and complex?”

This was the question posed recently by David Bollier, a policy strategist, activist, and a leading voice in the commons movement.

In an effort to find the answer, Bollier and his colleague Anna Grear, a law professor at Cardiff University, connected with a number of people about the “positive, practical steps that anyone can take in dealing with the terrible challenges of our time.”

One result of their efforts is the short film, Re-imagine the Future, which features conversations with international law professors, human rights advocates and activists who participated in the Operationalising Green Governance workshop outside of Paris earlier this year.
