We live in turbulent times. Rarely in history have we faced such deep divisions and the need for a profoundly different path. Our political and economic institutions are failing us. They appear to lack a moral compass grounded in safeguarding and extending human rights, strengthening and supporting community and protecting the planet.
Our market dominated economy creates greater concentrations of wealth and income inequality while people’s most basic needs are left unmet. Our systems of productive and distribution are both incredibly wasteful and threaten the survival of the planet. We can and must do better, and do many things differently.
The choices we make in the next two decades must take us on a new path. They will determine our success in creating a world of peace, prosperity, and health for all that is both life affirming and ecologically sustainable for future generations.
SocialCommons.ca seeks to build engaging conversations and support transformative change. All stories will be framed by our five pillars that provide the foundation for all our work. Together with our partners, we are committed to creating a future society based on stronger human rights and social protections, revitalized communities, and a more democratic and caring economy. We seek to generate an enlarged social commons with shared community assets, and where local economies are embedded within a sustainable eco-sphere on which all life on the planet depends.
