Commons Transition Coalition
Based predominantly in Melbourne, The Commons Transition Coalition was initiated in December 2015. It aims to connect leaders of groups, organisations and enterprises that support commons-based initiatives to amplify our work, support our endeavours and build capacity for the transition to a just and environmentally sustainable Social Knowledge Economy. This Coalition is for Australian and New Zealand leaders but could embrace other regions. The network takes inspiration from P2P Foundation's Michel Bauwens's work on p2p and commons transition.
New Economy Lawyers Network
Leveraging the Law in Service of Sharing
Convened by the Australian Earth Laws Alliance, the Australian Sharing Law Network is interested in building the role of law to support sharing practices such as sharing resources, reducing material consumption and creating community based and democratically managed enterprises such as co-operatives.
Organisations participating in the network include the Australian Earth Laws Alliance, UNSW Australia, Melbourne Law School’s Sustainability Business Clinic and Environmental Justice Australia.
