The Progressive International welcomes Common Wealth to the Movement

Common Wealth is a progressive think tank designing ownership models for a more democratic and sustainable economy.
Common Wealth aims for the steady and irreversible replacement of today’s unequal, extractive economy with one where freedom, solidarity, and dignity are a universal inheritance.
Common Wealth aims for the steady and irreversible replacement of today’s unequal, extractive economy with one where freedom, solidarity, and dignity are a universal inheritance.

Common Wealth projects focus on six systemically vital areas where democratic ownership can transform how our economy operates and for whom: building a digital commons, redefining internationalism, reimagining social institutions, stewarding land & nature, democratising enterprise and rewiring finance.

Upon joining, Mathew Lawrence, Common Wealth Director, said:

"We join with countless others in the struggle for a world that is democratic, decolonised, and just. Liberated from all forms of oppression, sustainable and solidaristic in purpose, and pluralistic and prosperous in action, our internationalism seeks a world where we share in common the wealth we create together.

Anchoring that must be a new era of democratic ownership that puts people and planet first, creating a global economy in which wealth and power are fairly shared within and beyond borders. Against the Amazons of the world, the need for an internationalism of genuine equity and voice is more urgent than ever."

Help us build the Movement

The Movement connects, supports, and organizes progressive forces around the world.

In just a few months since launch, the Movement has published over 20 statements from our members, drawing crucial attention to uprisings in Serbia and Belarus and denouncing moves to curtail democracy in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Guatemala.

With over 40 member organizations from more than 25 countries — including trade unions, parties, alliances, and associations, collectively representing millions of people — the Movement is fast becoming a truly planetary front. This work is only possible thanks to you.

Help us build this common front. Donate to the Movement.
