Some thoughts from the Colibris’ Movement
The negative consequences of individualism remind us that being human is first and foremost a being of relationship. Consequently, a sense of belonging to a community is necessary for its development. However, it is worth asking ourselves what is a community in the 21st century? And how can it help us to face environmental and social challenges in the years to come?
As part of the Oasis project, the Colibris’ movement explores the notion of “work-together” and reconstruction of the notion of community. Unlike our classical understanding of commnity, the Colibris’ movement proposed no longer seeing community as the transgression of our individual freedom but as a source of wealth. Through this new understanding of community, we can, together, to magine new places of life and resources that would be, on their scale, the model of the more ecological and civic society that we have to build.
