Next steps in The Commons. Thanks for lending a hand.
- Dear Friends,
As I believe most of you are aware, the World Transport/New Mobility Agenda
program is a lively sub-set of something called The Commons, which you may
have visited at one point but which, like the New Mobility Agenda in fact,
is in the process of a major overhaul and expansion. By way of quick
reminder here in a few words is what we have to say about the job that The
Commons has taken upon itself to do:
The Commons Open Society Sustainability Initiative: Seeking out and
supporting new sustainability concepts for business, entrepreneurs,
activists, community groups, and government; a thorn in the side of hesitant
administrators and politicians; and through our joint efforts, energy and
personal choices, placing them and ourselves firmly on the path to a more
sustainable and more just society.
Against this backdrop, I would like to invite you to give us a few minutes
of your valuable time and click over to The Commons at http://ecoplan.org
<http://ecoplan.org/>, where you will see three new sections concerning
which I would greatly appreciate your advice and suggestions:
1. Talking Sustainability: The first is toward the bottom of the left
menu under World Outreach/Talking Sustainability. Here we would like to
build up a collection of links to lively news and discussion groups that are
trying to take an ordinal and useful whack at the sustainability
problematique world wide . . . and in particular of course from a more
activist 'policy and practice' perspective, as opposed to longer term
research, hand wringing, what have you. Kindest thanks for getting back to
us on this so that we can make it a stronger resource.
2. A day at the office: This link you will see on the top menu takes
you to a new idea concerning which I would also like your counsel. As you
will see if you click to it, the idea behind it is to give whoever comes
into The Commons a feel for the kind of rich flow of ideas and materials
that pass through here.. and the number of exceptional people and groups who
are working hard at their corner of the sustainability agenda in their
patch. What do you think? Is this useful? Do you have any suggestions for
new topics, etc.?
3. World Sustainability Resources: Suggestions? Are you there? Your
favorite site or group?
Thanks for giving a hand in this. The results will, or should one would
hope, serve us all well.
