Making Worlds, Building the Commons in NYC is a collaborative effort by Occupy Wall St and other groups and individuals to explore the utility of the commons in creating a better world.

Making Worlds: a Commons Coalition brings projects working to reclaim the commons to the fore of the Occupy movement. Commons can be defined as resources managed and sustained by the communities that make use of them. The commons belong to the 99% yet are endangered by privatization and commodification. Making Worlds grows out of an understanding that Occupy itself is a form of commoning, a process in which everyone can participate, every voice can contribute, an open movement that belongs to no one and to everyone. Through holding conversations in communities around the city among organizations, activists and others, we aim to create links between the Occupy movement, the Commons movement, activist organizations and people who may not consider themselves activists. This way we can become visible to each other and work together on our common problems.
