Gabriola Book Launch - Reclaiming the Commons with Heather Menzies

by: Alina on 05/22/2014

Self-organize! Self-govern! Self-inform! The Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good book launch is Friday, May 23rd from 5 to 8 pm at the Gabriola Commons.

In what promises to be an inspiring night for all, Heather Menzies, award-winning writer, scholar and recent member of the Order of Canada, shares different approaches to restoring the commons. Accompanying the conversation will be a potluck with food, wine, music and good company.

Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good is Menzies’ moving account of the history of the commons and its disappearance, and explores these crucial but largely forgotten practices for living sustainably together through self-organizing, self-governing and ecological commons practices. This exploration is timely, providing key contemporary practices and initiatives to help us reconnect with each other and the Earth, which will help to chart new and sustainable ways forwards.

Come join us for an evening of community and open dialogue.
