Commons Health
Commons Health was established to advance the essential ecological principles that underlie health and which are underpinning the transformation of healthcare, economics, and foods systems back into realignment with Earth's operating system.

We do so by linking and networking transformational place-based models. And through education and training we are building a global community of practice.

We believe a new operating system embodied in systems thinking is fundamental
to our journey through the Great Transition. This mindset of interconnectedness brings shifts in perception that  positively influence health and support our collective ability to be alive and well together. 

We understand that we must heal the trauma and undo deeply rooted systems of oppression and of human value.

We honour our relationship with all life and share gratitude for the gifts of nature.

We value the vital importance of “power within,” social relationships, and connection, and embraces the interplay of psycho-social, spiritual, environmental, and other factors in the support and promotion of individual health and well-being.

We appreciate the significance of our intimate relationship to social, environmental and economic influences of well-being which help us embrace the recognition that ultimately health and "being alive well together" is local.

Join a community of practice, and learn key tools and strategies to help co-create place-based models of well being,  a new health operating system and evolve shared knowledge, experience, communication and collaborations.
