The Procomum Institute

The Procomum Institute (IP) is a Brazilian non-profit organization whose mission is to act to recognize, strengthen and protect the commons, create new community arrangements and prevent processes of enclosure by private and state action. It is, therefore, a political mission, based on the belief that the current world asks of us the emergence of a “(trans-local) citizenship based on local action with planetary awareness”. They are a platform-institution that strengthens other organizations. They have been seeking to accomplish this mission through a set of actions that follow three principles: learning how to dream again, choosing who to act with; and lowering the center of gravity.
