|Paragraphe biographique=I have worked as an architect and planning consultant and as an activist for sustainability for over 20 years.  My main input was in Feasta: Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability (www.feasta.ie) but I also served on 10+ NGO, professional or government boards promoting community development or environmental sustainability. About four years ago, I gave up all that ineffective advocacy promising myself only to work on real projects that promise immediate benefits. The commons movement is a framework for projects that perfectly fit the prescription!
 +
I now lead two communing projects;-  the Irish Biochar Cooperative based in Tipperary and the Community Land Trust Initiative based in Dublin.
 +
The more advanced is the Irish Biochar Cooperative Society Ltd trading as +Char www.pluschar.ie.  Despite its benefits, biochar still remains a niche technology / product known only to few environmentalists. We think we can mainstream biochar using a business model that has proved very successful in  Irish agriculture in the 1930-50s - the agricultural cooperative. For these times, we decided we needed a multi stakeholder /open cooperative to succeed. The Biochar Coop
 +
has 8 founder members representing workers, producers, users, service providers and community.  We hope to expand with roll out of our habitat management services and new farm products this year.
 +
The Community Land Trust Initiative (CLTI)  is a forum for now while we discuss the best model to take forward. The CLTI comprises a 40+ group of building, planning and housing professionals, activists, politicians and builders who are determined to address Ireland's housing crisis and see common ownership of land as a fundamental part of the solution. We may form our own community land trust or we may partner with a local authority in an arms length trust. We will know in 6 months or so.
