Chulalongkorn University Right Livelihood Summer School (CURLS) 2016 :The COMMONS, COMPASSION & COMMUNITIES

Once we cultivate genuine compassion, the soil is prepared to receive seeds of happiness. Communities grow and shape the commons.

Seeds are essential for our livelihoods, for our food and the security of future generations. Private and public property regimes are not sufficient to match with the challenges of sustainable development. When we take good care of the Earth, grow our food with dignity and organize our consumption sustainably, we can speak of “Right Livelihood”. For achieving this goal we have to re-examine our worldviews and re-think the governance paradigms ruling our world. Land-grabbing, seed dependency and corporate strategies to get hold of our lives by means of intellectual property challenge the very foundations of our Human Security.
