Common Security Clubs

We mentioned Common Security Clubs (CSC’s) briefly when we were blogging from our convening on “Applying the Commons.” For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, CSC’s are small groups of individuals who meet together to learn, support each other, and take action to create a new economy that serves people and the planet. In the process, a common security club allows neighbors (co-workers, etc) to get to know one another, find inspiration, have fun, and strengthen community.

The number of clubs has grown quickly over the last couple of years as people struggle to find a sense of security in very uncertain times. Many have realized that security cannot be created by individuals alone, but rather by coming together and sharing what we have in common.

On Wednesday, Dec 8th at 3pm Eastern, there will be a webinar on how to start a Common Security Club, the background behind them, and a review of the curriculum

For more information on Commons Security Clubs, as well as resources and additional groups and trainings in your area, visit the CSC website.
