About the lecture 

Professor Guy Standing's latest book Plunder of the Commons questions the commodification of our shared wealth, from the air we breathe, to the water we drink to the public spaces we all use. Guy’s talk will address these themes and outline a future vision and practical steps on how we might collectively reclaim and expand the Commons for present and future generations.
