Thanks for getting in touch with us at The Future of Occupy!

Here are our editorial criteria:
    * Pertinent to the evolution of the movement 
and its capacity to meet challenges and 
opportunities of increasing scale. That criteria 
especially includes content related to enhancing 
our capacity to deal with the complexity of larger issues.
    * Presenting new solutions to pressing problems facing humanity.
    * References to the commons, reclaiming the 
commons, commons-based peer-production, 
commons-based society, which we consider a key 
element of a sustainable, people-powered future.
    * Raising public awareness about the 
significance and strategic options of the 
structural changes that society is going through, with fresh perspectives.
    * Reflecting the movement’s potential to 
advance the building of new institutions capable 
to overcome the democracy deficit of the current 
establishment. Ref from 
<>Our Point of View.
We are happy to
    * very simply promote TLIO particularly if it 
has an upcoming event you would like occupiers to 
come to like we did here for 
the Fields.
    * Think of or find a piece of writing that 
meets one of our editorial criteria above curated 
for occupy readers and including TLiO.
Both suggestions could strengthen 
links/collaboration between TLiO and Occupy, at a 
time when Occupy is looking for ways to reach out 
and connect with others. Additionally if there 
are other ways you think you could get involved 
with us including any of the ways 
<>here then please let me know.
