A rough guide to the commons by Charlie Tims

There are a raft of major challenges that complicate the creation of the commons today. The researcher and writer Charlie Tims considers some of the most pressing of these challenges – in combination with landmark efforts to regain control over domestic and international modes of governance, as well as to reclaim resources, public space and housing. The following text is based on his September 2015 talk at the ECF's annual Idea Camp.

Culture and the commons is a cooperation between Eurozine and European Cultural Foundation's (ECF) Connected Action for the Commons, a network and action research programme coordinated by the ECF together with cultural organisations in Croatia, France, Poland, Moldova, Spain and Sweden.
