What are the global commons?
The global commons are the resources we all need to survive, thrive and prosper. These resources, which include the oceans and freshwater, the climate and biodiversity and forests and wetlands are being overused. But the global commons also represents a management approach based on systems thinking, transformation and self-organization to bring out the best in people. We want to bring out the best in people, cities, companies and countries. This is the foundation for our plan for the planet.
