Join Paul Baines (founder of the Great Lakes Commons Map) to see and hear how we can use maps, digital tools, and storytelling to shift into a new possibility for water stewardship. Open source technologies, collaborative practices, and a commons ethic are the connecting elements of this work and it's time for this project to be shared and shaped by more people - like you.

That is the question. Or maybe -- how we ought to re-occupy. Though to this point it has been more a question of when, rather than if or how. Once Occupy Vancouver's camp was evicted, First Nations elders reminded us that winter was the time for recuperation, storytelling, planning, and readying for the spring. And indeed, the call for a spring re-occupation has been in circulation almost since the evictions became general, with perhaps the loudest and clearest call coming in the form of the Spanish Indignados and the DRY (Democracia Real Ya) movement's #12m12 call to make the 12th of May 2012 a day of global action: "Let's turn the streets into the biggest loudspeaker on earth."
