Important considerations on the future commons

thumbs_sonomaproduct3_0

We are working with communities, and how they come into play when new plans, regarding communities, are being planned and rolled out.

Samso has many years of experience with communities. The Energy Academy invites and involves communities in engagement and ownership.

The publisher Energy Academy have decided to use the next year to focus on how modern communities works.

Do we want the community?

Reading groups on Fune, Seeland and Samso have put communities on the agenda

The starting point is the book “Commonties, common + communities” by Tor Nørretranders and Søren Hermansen – a debate book about the community in praxis, about the theories on coorperations and the common as the gathering factor.

The debate has been lively in the reading groups, new questions have arisen, and a new debate proposals can be under way.

As a participant in the Samso reading group I have had focus on the many small and big communities, that exist and how we each interact with each other in the communities.

The reading group is also a community – a new community with everything it implies. Other communities, I became a part of, is older communities, where I am the new member. The dynamic in the two communities is very different, but there are still many common features.

My focus on communities have made me aware of how many commons and communities I am a part of – how about you?

Flattr this!

    Et af de største fællesskaber i verden FN har vedtaget at udnævne året 2012 som det internationale år for bæredygtig energi til alle, jf Generalsekretær Ban Ki-moon’s åbningstale den 16. januar 2012 fra World Future Energy mødet 2012 i Abu Dhabi i De Forenede Arabiske Emirater under referencen: http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=40951&Cr=energy&Cr1

    Desværre synes FN’s opfordring ikke at blive fulgt i alle medlemslandene, heller ikke i Danmark, jf f.eks. mit indlæg den 05-02-2012 på den forholdsvis nye miljødebat hjemmeside Ecoprofile Danmark under referencen http://www.ecoprofile.dk/thread-2512-Statslige-institutioner-bor-ga-foran-i-gron-jobskabelse.html#19929

    Problemet synes at være, at der kan være forskelligeartede interesser i forskellige fællesskaber, hvor især kortsigtede økonomiske interesser i en åben global markedsøkonomi, ofte kommer til at blokere for tiltag og initiativer, som virkelig ville kunne fremskynde en bæredygig udvikling med vedvarende energi til alle på kloden.

    Denne problemstilling gør sig gældende på alle niveauer selv i et lille land som Danmark, hvor det teknisk ville være muligt at foretage en total omlægning af energiforsyningen til 100% VE indenfor en ganske kort tidsperiode, men hvor andre hensyn og interesser, især kortsigtede økonomiske interesser, vil medføre at tidshorisonten for en total omlægning af energiforsyningen til 100% VE vil blive betydeligt længere end nødvendigt.
