The Transition… to a Fully Commons-Based Society

The concept in three words...

Realizing, merging, funding, organizing & expanding the global commons – knowledge, culture, means of production and land property.

Solidaria will open up a space where all our activity is aimed towards extending the commons – open knowledge and freeculture as well as the material commons like housing, property and means of production!

It enables you to work in cooperatives of the commons based peer-to-peer economy, no matter if you’re working in the knowledge economy or in a classical field. And it enables you to work for the commons even in projects that normally wouldn’t be economically viable – and still make a living off it! The decision which project you want to work on does not depend on the question if it is convertible into something commercial – all that matters is that you are contributing to the commons.

And it gives you back the power over how the economy works by opening up economic and environmental decisions to all stakeholders – it’s not the capitalist elite deciding anymore, but also not only the people inside the cooperatives,  it’s everyone!

It gives you the opportunity to consume inside the commons-based economy wherever possible. It also opens up powerful ways of collaborative consumption or producing things yourself.

And last but not least it even gives you the possibility to financially support the extension of the commons even with the big part of consumption that is not possible inside of it yet.

Let’s hit the reset button and rethink everything – together.

We want to design an organizational and financial framework to organize a society based on a profits-to-society-economy and open access, non-hierarchical collaboration on and organization of any aspect of society.

This is supposed to become a community effort. Our proposition of a possible, coherent solution that could be realized and used right away is the platform “Solidaria”. It is meant to be the starting point of discussion, not the one and only way to realize our goal. We want to gather a community of enthusiasts which aims to converge the advantages from many concepts and movements and to add more strategical thinking where they are too partial and to add a practical approach where they only provide theoretical constructs.

There’s enough out there to form our own society – made by the people themselves. We do not need to destroy capitalism. We just need to build our own system ourselves and make it resilient – as a whole.

Our Proposal:

Solidaria aims to gather advantages from many concepts and movements and to add more strategical thinking where they are too partial and to add a practical approach where they only provide theoretical constructs.
