Event: Discussion of the Commons by Jay Walljasper. May 22, 2014, 6 pm at the Rondo Library, St. Paul, MN, Hosted by Common Ground USA. Details below
Winter is over (finally), and it’s time for Common Ground USA’s free Annual Public Event. This year’s event will feature a discussion of the Commons with Jay Walljasper [streets.mn contributor], author of All That We Share: A Field Guide to the Commons and editor of onthecommons.org. At our event, Jay will lead a wide-ranging participatory discussion about what the commons means, how it works, why does it matter in 21st Century, and how might it help us solve our problems.
Jay, formerly editor of the Utne Reader, has been spreading the commons viewpoint through speaking in a host of cities throughout North America and publishing articles in many news outlets such as National Geographic Traveler, The San Francisco Chronicle, and the Chicago Tribune. To learn more, visit his website: jaywalljasper.com.
The event will be on Thursday May 22, 2014, 6 pm at the Rondo Library, St. Paul, MN and refreshments will be provided. In addition to the discussion on the commons, you’ll also learn about what’s been going on in the Twin Cities around land value capture and about different ways you can get involved with efforts to create Land Value Tax Districts in Minnesota.
Feel free to bring a guest and please let us know if you plan to attend. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you there.
