Information and registration 

Many people are engaged in commons-based alternative practices as part 
of the struggle for ecological, social and cultural transition within 
their communities. In these fields, the commons approach offers a new 
vocabulary for collective action and social justice. It opens up ways of 
reshaping processes for the governance of resources by communities 
themselves. Commons-based practices respect values of sharing and 
cooperation, equity and diversity, transparency and sustainability.

In November 2016, a group of 150 commoners from all over Europe gathered 
in Brussels to lay the foundations for a united and strong European 
commons movement. The *European Commons Assembly* was born.
