From the Ground Up is an organization mobilized around issues of community control of land, housing and the economy, that seeks solutions in a process of participatory democracy, while renewing aspirations and expanding collective ambitions. 

Members of From the Ground Up adhere to the Montreal Declaration, which was drafted following the April 2019 conference.

From the Ground Up is in the process of defining its mission, action plan and structure for its future actions and needs help for this process. A temporary coordination committee has been constituted to come with proposals that will be accepted in a constituent assembly.

If you wish to help in joining the temporary coordination committee (per example, to translate its proposal to English) or to be invited to its first assembly, please write to us:
