Even though the pandemic has illustrated the structural flaws of the market/state order, post-capitalist alternatives that are fair, more humane, and eco-friendly are often ignored. This webinar addresses the problem by exploring how commons’ projects around the world are pioneering flourishing new social and economic logics.
Peer-organised initiatives for relocalised agriculture, platform co-operatives, cosmo-local production, urban commons, community wealth building, and sustainable care work are showing that people-friendly provisioning is possible.The open question is how to support and expand these promising institutional innovations in an indifferent or hostile policy climate.
