Everyone talks about the weather, but how many of us actually know what a lenticular cloud is or what the dew point means? In the nonprofit sector we throw around tax opinions, but here’s a chance to learn something (uh oh).
What’s Your Common Good IQ? by Kim Klein and CompassPoint
The Commons is a new way to express a very old idea—that some forms of wealth belong to all of us, and that these community resources must be actively protected and managed for the good of all—resources such as air, oceans and wildlife, as well as shared social creations such as libraries, city parks, public art, sidewalks, and water fountains.
The Common Good is a way of looking at the world in which all actions, laws, policies and customs are examined to see if they benefit as many people as possible, if they protect the most vulnerable, and if they promote a rough social equity so that there is very little distance between the richest and poorest people in the community.
Although it is easy to believe in the common good, we often find we don’t know much about what that would look like in practice. Test your knowledge about the commons and the common good and then resolve to learn more.
