En Commmuns is an initiative in Lille, France, by Simon Sarazin and colleagues from the Coroutine and Mutualab ‘open source third places’, to map and document the commons economy, by identifying entities producing for the common good, their immaterial and material commons, and the value streams between them.
Simon writes that:
“”Encommuns.org make transparent all “business around commons”.
The idea is to help busineses in gaining confidence with commons and commons to get retributed when the busineses use them.
This will also help us in identifying all the busineses working in a respectful way with some commons.
Common self-evaluation is done with 10 criteria.”
The project has also produced great graphics explaining the inter-relationship between the public, private and commons sector, see below.
