In the beautifully titled Supercommunities, Keith Harrison-Broninski explains how very contemporary digital tools can be used to reinforce old and important ideas about community and common interest. Our politics and economics of ‘me’ must return to being about ‘we,’ and this book shows us how.
Vint Cerf, Co-Inventor of the Internet: “We will need to replace short-term thinking with long term planning and execution if we are to regain upward motion towards common benefit for everyone on Spaceship Earth. To begin, read this book!”

The book offers a practical way for communities across the globe to deal with inequality and the climate crisis. By 2050, half the planet will be living on a knife edge. Communities cannot afford to wait for cash-strapped governments to address inequality and climate change. But how can they afford to take action themselves?
“Ranging from ancient history to economics to psychology to public policy ‘Supercommunities’ is both authoritative and highly readable. It puts our current challenges in context, shows why change is necessary and provides a trove of practical ideas for change makers.” – Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive, The Royal Society of Arts
“Supercommunities” proposes that cities, towns, neighborhoods, and villages can and must become ecosystems able to sustain their natural, human, and industrial capitals. A supercommunity evolves from within to meet new challenges in times of crisis. It removes friction from collaboration so that local people become stakeholders and local organizations work together effectively. Powered by social trading, a supercommunity leverages progressive economic ideas and digital tools for local wellness.
