Introduction to the Commons 4 Development

Oral tradition has it that every society had its place of meeting- it was either the big Msasa tree in the middle of the African village or the City Gate if you were in the ancient Greece or even Israel-the concern and focus of these forums was to create solutions together in a consensual manner. This is where the idea of the physical commons originates- land used collectively.

Its 6:12am on Saturday (20.10.2012) and I am climbing Mt Ngomakurira, approximately 27km North East of Harare and I keep on asking myself where did this madness come from. The mountain is mostly a steep granite dome and I am literally climbing using both my legs and hands.
