Join the movement. Let’s co-design and build the Stroud Commons together.

We want your views to be represented.

We’re currently looking for:

Anyone interested in commoning

Join a group of people interested in commoning specific parts of the economy – energy, water, housing, land, transport, care, health, education, media, anything – depending on your interests. More here.


First of all, we’re looking for people with some savings – maybe a pension, maybe a deposit for a house – but who realise they’re not actually going to be able to buy a house, and who don’t trust the banks and pension funds, in terms of a) what they’ll do with the money, and b) whether they’re secure.

Instead, you can invest your money in your community, to help build commons, community-owned housing – local bricks and mortar (so totally secure). Later, you could have a portfolio of investments in commons energy, water, social care, food, housing etc. that will represent a real, inflation-proof pension, based in community, not owned by banks or pension funds.

Business owners
