Description

"STWR is a non-governmental organization campaigning for those resources which are essential to life, such as water, energy and basic food, to be shared internationally under the auspices of the United Nations in order to secure basic human needs.

Our website presents a broad mix of the latest information, news and videos on a range of key global issues including poverty, globalization and climate change.

As a think-tank we also publish reports on these issues and provide information on how and why sharing the world’s resources can end poverty and create a sustainable world.

Our current objectives are to communicate our information and reports as widely as possible and to unite the global justice movement under a universal call for sharing.

STWR is a non-governmental, politically unaffiliated and not-for-profit organization founded in 2003, funded entirely through private donations." (http://www.stwr.org/about/overview.html)

Discussion

Stacco Troncoso: The good people at Share the World's Resources recently contacted the P2P Foundation to present their latest report, "A primer on global economic sharing". It's an impressive piece of work, taking the often misused concept of a "Sharing Economy" to reimagine it for the benefit of all humankind and the planet. The report includes a series of carefully thought out policy proposals to achieve this end. It is a very impressive document that should be read by as many people as possible, both by social movements and any progressive political parties that actually want to do things that matter.
