INTERACTIVE SEMINAR: THE COMMONS TRANSITION IN PRACTICE
For this seminar we are looking for people who are working on (or with) commons in an institution, research group, organization or other context. At this seminar you get the chance to debate with two inspiring experts working in the commons field. Michel Bauwens (P2P-Foundation) and Elena De Nictolis (LabGov), the experts will start this seminar by sharing some of their experiences and knowledge. After this introduction you get the chance to enrich this debate by taking part in the dialogue contributing from your own experience and knowledge.
This seminar is focussing on people who are working already on commons. In this way we like to bring experts and experiential experts together to tackle together the challenge how urban commons transitions can be the prototype for creating socio-ecological societies.
Founder and director of the P2P Foundation and expert in peer production, governance and property. Bauwens is a well-known public speaker and thought leader. In 2017 he wrote the Commons Transition Plan for Ghent, after a similar project for Ecuador.
