Supercommunities

A handbook for the 21st century

The new book by Keith Harrison-Broninski


With foreword by Vint Cerf, Co-Inventor of the Internet and Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA

"Supercommunities" is the first in a trilogy. See the "Upcoming" section below for details of the two books yet to be published, "Supernations" and "Superorganisations".

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?

Cities, towns, neighbourhoods, and villages can and must become supercommunities — 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 organisations work together effectively. Powered by social trading, a supercommunity leverages progressive economic ideas and digital tools for local wellness.


Today, a tiny fraction of global investment is into social impact. Supercommunities will unlock the true potential of finance by offering investors worldwide the chance to become stakeholders in good things.

See below for explanatory videos (1 minute explainers and other talks), testimonials, a synopsis of the book, and bonus material on Web platforms for communities.
