Cooperatives and the Commons

Atelier de discussion
12 Août 2016  9h00 - 11h00

For up to date information on this session see the Commons Space program on –

This session will bring together commoners and cooperators for discussion and debate on the opportunities and challenges in bringing together movements for the progressive development of p2p/commons models, open coops, platform cooperativism and advancing their role in creating real collaborative and sharing economies.

We welcome participation of activists working with Cooperative, Social Solidarity Economy and Commons movements with an interest in sharing, learning and exchanging ideas, insights and experience.

The session will begin with a short panel presenting a number innovative initiatives and topics for discussion before opening the discussion to the floor.

As part of the program of the Commons Space this is a key moment to network and we aim to make a collective contribution on these topics to the convergence process.

For those new to this topic and interested in finding out more we recommended reading –
