All That We Share

All That We Share is subtitled 'A Field Guide to the Commons' and it is an interesting collection of ideas about navigating what we have in common in the context of increasing populations, limited resources and a growing awareness that we can no longer properly consider, as Protagoras did, 'man as the measure of all things.' The Commons-Based way of thinking is 'a way of life that values what we share as much as what we own.'

Perhaps it is simply because I'm older and my kids are grown, or almost so, that this idea of focusing on what we share seems so important to me. At any rate, here is a connection to some interesting work.
