"Commons and Resource Sharing" Workshop in Brussels
This workshop is a part of the Reclaim the Commons project, which in 2016 has a special focus on two themes - the relation between the commons and policy, and the impact of commons as a governance model on the public services. In the scope of this transnational project, the Green European Foundation and Etopia will implement three events in Belgium throughout this year, with this workshop as the first.
Themes of the Workshop:
From economic platforms to waste and energy management cooperatives, the question of communal structures is becoming more and more salient. Linked to the question of resource management, these new structures offer a range of new and innovative opportunities and projects. Trust between partners, savings made as well as original forms of co-management and coordination provide pathways to new alternatives.
What are the means and frameworks to be put in place? Towards which objectives? And how does the sharing of communal resources represent an ecological and social alternative. These are some of the questions we tackled during this event with our speakers.
- The Gérard Fourré and Marc Moura from the Comptoir des ressources créatives and Dynamo;
- Bertrand Merckx from Ecores.
Time and Location:
Date TBC, at the premises of Etopia in Brussels (Place des barricades, 1 - 4th floor).
