Exploring Alternatives - Welcome

For the past couple of years I have collated and curated the possibilities, concepts, alternatives that people striving for a 'better world' were working on and talking about in various social network groups dedicated to sustainability, commons, new economy. Additions or changes are welcome here. The goal I thought of for the map is to make it easier: For change agents, activists, innovators, community & social entrepreneurs to recognize which spot or niche they occupy or wish to occupy within the possibility/action space so they can assert their position and adjust their action and discourse in relation to an overarching purpose and what is 'around' them.

The map is definitely meant to be a learning tool. For the moment this is a curated map. A simple Pearl Tree is available here.
