Peer Value: Advancing the Commons Collaborative Economy

Amsterdam. September 2-3, 2016

Peer Value: Advancing the Commons Collaborative Economy is a conference integrating conversations and plans of action for shaping and connecting the Commons on a global level.

Our final program is listed below,  please join us in Amsterdam!

The conference is organized along three tracks:

      • Track 1: P2P: Inclusive Politics, Activism and Law for the Commons
      • Track 2: Decentralized Tech and Beyond:Global Design,Local Production
      • Track 3: From Platform to Open Cooperativism

We will explore questions such as:

      • What are the conditions that encourage communities to work as peers, creating commons?
      • What are the best practices communities can adopt to safeguard their resilience?
      • Decentralization – why is it important, and how is it implemented and maintained?
      • How can the working methodologies honed by well-established digital communities act as transitional guidelines for sustainable “material” manufacturing?
      • What about social innovation and livelihoods – how does contributory and open accounting work with the systems of value creation found in CBPP?
      • How can civil society participate in recommending policy proposals that support CBPP for governments at the local, regional, national – even global – levels?

Join your peers, add your voice and take part in the growing conversation about the Commons as an important, emerging collaborative social model.
