We are a commons education group based in London, established as a Community Interest Company under UK law.

What is the Commons?

“The social and political space where things get done and where people have a sense of belonging and have an element of control over their lives, providing sustenance, security and independence... Commons are organized around resources that are collectively owned or shared between or among populations. These resources are said to be held in common and can include everything from natural resources to domains of the cultural sphere, e.g.: literature, music, arts, design, film, video, television, radio, information, software and sites of heritage. The commons can also include ‘public goods’ such as public space, public education, health and the infrastructure that allows our society to function (such as electricity or water delivery systems). There also exists the ‘life commons’, e.g. the human genome.” (Wikipedia)


Our Purpose

To benefit society by enhancing individual and collective competences in the protection, governance, and cultivation of commons, as an autonomous partner to the private and public sectors.
