Cooperative Networks exists as a think-and-do tank with the goal of fostering innovation in and around the cooperative/P2P/commons economy. We aim to provide a space for the development of new thinking and projects with the potential for significant impact in the transition to an economy that works for people and planet. Our foundation is built on cooperative values and principles. Our interests lie in the nexus of cooperation and the digital space. Our vision is of a society and economy that is based on fairness, equality, mutual aid, and environmental care.

a commons arises whenever a given community decides it wishes to manage a resource in a collective manner, with special regard for equitable access, use and sustainability
