Help Us Forge Links Between Co-ops and the Commons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

According to the International Co-operative Alliance: A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise. Let's do a little remix: The Commons are artefacts openly licensed by an autonomous association of persons. They use open licensing to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled system of resources. The Co-op movement and the Open movement have more than a little in common, yet they are tenuously connected through individuals rather than entire communities. In this session, we try to figure out how to change that.
