Welcome to the Commons Transition Wiki! Please read through the sections below to get acquainted with our working methods.
How you can contribute
We like to say that this project is itself a commons, open to contributions and intended for the benefit of those who need it. Feedback is specially welcome on any of the policy documents found on our wiki. Other ways to get involved include suggesting related projects for consideration, or sharing and discussing these proposals with your local policymakers, media and communities.
What the Commons Transition Wiki is (and isn't)
The Commons Transition Wiki is a directory of Commons-oriented initiatives and policy proposals. It acts as an indexed repository of material on transitioning societies at all levels towards a commons orientation, both in the field of shared knowledge pools and material production. Our aim is to catalogue, discuss and improve upon these proposals and to connect the social movements promoting them.
This wiki is, therefore, a specialised directory with a very precise (albeit inclusive) focus. For general P2P-Commons theory and resources, we suggest our "mother" information commons: The P2P Foundation Wiki which has a much larger scope
