- An introduction to the commons as a new/old form of social provisioning and governance
- A review of commons-based institutional innovations now underway
- Discussion of political, economic, and legal barriers impeding key commons sectors
A focus on peer-organised initiatives for relocalised agriculture, platform co-operatives, cosmo-local production, urban commons, community wealth building, and sustainable care work, among other approaches. Participants will leave with a keener sense of specific models for actualising social and economic change; a vocabulary and concepts that open up new vistas of possibility; and a mental map of the leading people, projects, websites, and movements developing new institutional forms.
