Nurturing social and environmental production
Extending decision making and ownership
Active Creators of Commons
Creating new physical and digital commons
Rethinking Global/Local Economics
Make locally and share knowledge globally
Carework is the Core
Care makes DisCOs healthy and happy
Origins and Flows of Value
Making Livelihood, Love and Carework visible

Creating non-regimented critical mass
While the 7 Principles are like verbs, actions common to all DisCOs,the DisCO Values are more like adjectives, descriptions particular to each group.
