“Commons Collaborative Economies: Policies, Technologies and City for the People” – International workshop in Barcelona

P2Pvalue-FLOSSOn the 11th, 12th and 13th of March, Barcelona will host the International Workshop on Commons Collaborative Economies: Policies, Technologies and City for the People, promoted by the Municipality in collaboration with the P2P Value European project, a techno-social platform for sustainable models and value generation in commons-based peer production in the Future Internet.

The aim of the workshop is “to highlight the relevance of the commons-oriented approach of peer production and collaborative economy” by producing two specific outcomes: proposing policy recommendations and providing technical guidelines to build free and open software and decentralized technologies.

The increasing importance of commons-based peer production raises questions also with regards to the role of public administration. Focusing on policy, the event will thus be an important opportunity for policy makers to exchange and interact with the technical teams of FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source Software) platforms for commons-based peer production communities (which were the subject of a previous workshop held on March 2015), and also to provide useful contents as regards the European Commission’s activity on collaborative economy.

The program will mix working groups and plenaries, which will focus on:

  • Public policies for commons collaborative economy
  • Commons and the city
  • Importance of decentralized technologies
  • Peer cooperativism: collaborative economy, feminist economy & social and solidarity economy
  • Value and collaborative production.

 

Among the speakers of this interdisciplinary workshop, many scholars, experts and practitioners from Europe and beyond. Professor Christian Iaione will chair the plenary on “Commons and the city” together with Joan Subirats i Humet, Institute of Government and Public Policy (IGOP), Autonomous University of Barcelona.
