Are there true sharing entreprises ? | P2P Foundation

Are there true sharing entreprises ? | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

When evaluating platforms claiming to be a part of the “sharing economy”, it is important to look at why they were set up, how they are organized, and who they are intended to benefit. Those that implement a logic of collaboration, sharing and distributed power at each of these levels, stand to offer a compelling vehicle for change and force us to take seriously the transformational power of the ‘true’ sharing economy.

Frederic Laloux's book “Reinventing Organizations” is rapidly gaining critical acclaim as an in-depth commentary on how radically soulful, pioneering organizations are beginning to emerge all across the planet. In this ground-breaking work he outlines the three major breakthroughs shared by these organizations: self-management, striving for wholeness, and listening to evolutionary purpose.

Doing Development Differently | The Official Blog of Heather Menzies, author of Reclaiming the Commons

Doing Development Differently | The Official Blog of Heather Menzies, author of Reclaiming the Commons | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Heather Menzies: "After consulting with key stakeholder groups, including citizens, community and environmental groups, unions, organizations like the Pembina Institute as well as those representing the oil and gas sector to create the commission of inquiry, Notley might then charge it with conducting public meetings across the province. Here, people can come together in small discussion groups followed by plenaries to talk about what development means to them. I envisage it being a bit like the open public meetings held across the country and across the North by the Berger Inquiry into the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline in the 1970s where Justice Thomas Berger broadened the discourse to allow other meanings of words like ‘economy,’ ‘development’ and ‘making a living’ to have weight. For some people who might turn out for this inquiry, ‘development’ might mean developing skills, or development more as a child grows into maturity, or a community develops as neighbours help and look out for one another. For others, it might mean developing right relations with habitats and within habitats."
