The Global Child – Commons for the Common Good: Part 2

In an article from James Bernard Quilligan: Beyond State Capitalism (http://onthecommons.org/beyond-state-capitalism)The Commons Economy in our Lifetimes, Mr. Quilligan wrote "Our global economic system is now in grave crisis, threatening the entire planet, its institutions and species. A new kind of common wealth is needed to protect the assets of Earth, resolve our private and public debts, and create a global society of justice, sharing and sustainability for everyone". There is no universally accepted definition of what constitutes global commons. However, in an international report from 1980, backed by several international organizations, global commons are said to include the oceans, the atmosphere, "parts of the earth's surface beyond national jurisdictions," and Antarctica. The concept is sometimes broadened to include social, intellectual and cultural resources such as traditions, languages, and scientific knowledge.
