Commons Network co-hosts ‘the City as a Commons’ at Pakhuis de Zwijger-Amsterdam

Amsterdam 1 September 2016- An evening on the rich history and promising future of the commons. How can we govern urban commons in co-creation? In search of a new democracy we are exploring new governance structures based upon the concept of the commons. In ‘Think like a commoner’, David Bollier presents his version of “the rich history and promising future of the commons”. In Amsterdam he shared with us his ideas on “an ageless paradigm of cooperation and fairness that is re-making our world.” Together with Christian Iaione (LabGov), David Hammerstein (Commons Network), Marleen Stikker (Waag Society) en Stan Majoor (HvA).
