Local Commons

Healthy Communities, Thriving Businesses

Local Commons is a community rooted, human-centered e-commerce platform built to facilitate a more purposeful union of business commerce and cultural organizations within the interweaving of society.

The systems architecture of Local Commons is built to direct consumer focus back to organizations and businesses within their respective communities. The result is a platform that would weave together a meaningful working connection through affiliations, associations, and commerce forming a stronger bond between the cultural and economic spheres with the consumer, local to themselves or in the business's respective community.

Local Commons is built to facilitate a closer working relationship between organizations and businesses for the benefit of their communities rather than for-profit alone. With Local Commons as a conduit for commerce, business, organizational and cultural events as well as funding through gift money and/or investments, a new organic social form can start to take root that will grow to encompass the awareness of the other more than the self.

Local Commons’ purpose is to work as an e-commerce alternative focusing on the person, the community and humanity, where profits start to flow outward instead of just upward, where the greatest freedom of determination can be made by the many instead of the few.

The three main areas of focus and its engagements through the Local Commons platform are as follows:

Cultural:

  1. Organizations – Organizations rooted in the service of the community will have a presence to represent their mission and work
  2. Events - Professional event calendar that is seamlessly integrated
  3. Funding – The handling of the other two forms of money, apart from Purchasing Money (the exchange for goods) include Gift Money (philanthropy) and Loan Money (micro-investment)

Economic:

  1. Businesses - Both product and service as well as their efforts and aspirations for work are represented
  2. Commerce – The focal point of the platform where products and services are sold to the public

Rights/Governance:

  1. Governance and policies of Local Commons and all its community reinvestment programs worldwide
  2. Accreditation -  The foundation for a new form of a business method that is rooted in a Threefold methodology
