Program Overview

Program Description:
The mission of the Commons Camp is to build and nurture a collaborative society, bridging people, organizations and ideas. We want to experiment a contamination of thinking and making, connecting the dots between makers and permaculturists, hackers and biohackers, researchers and artists, local administrations and social innovators. Our interest is focused on the collaborative economy by and for people, based on economic models that creates social and environmental distributed value. Theory and practice to enable the transition to economies based on emerging collaborative practices, to promote their shift from marginal to dominant paradigms.
