The living world is in trouble: Peak everything, climate change, social polarization. The root cause is that we are disconnected with, or even worse: in opposition to, nature, other people and ourselves. What to do about it? A far-reaching transformation of the very basic relations is needed. The concept and the experiences of commoning can offer hope. But how could such a transformation look like? Don’t expect final answers. They do not and cannot exist. Rather expect an attempt to approach this topic from different angles and to therewith get a hold of the complexity of the problem at hand.
