What communities do we belong to?

Communities are emerging all around us. They are the chosen families that sustain us. They are our neighbours who share their tools, our friends who share their recipes, our elders who share their knowledge and advice. They are the farmers within and outside our cities who feed us. They are the people with whom we face the most pressing environmental and social issues of our time. Following the model of plants and animals that collaborate in the wild, we are learning new creative, ecological, and inclusive ways of coexisting.

In Issue 08, BESIDE highlights the communities we belong to and that make us—individually and collectively—more resilient.
