On September 23, 2016, a gathering will be held in Paris to exchange
thoughts on new forms of local and thematic networking for the commons, and
to discuss the Assemblies of the Commons.
After the "Temps de commons" festival held last October in multiple
Francophone cities and countries worldwide (250+ events in total), new
forms of organization are emerging in Francophone areas and the world in
general, inspired by the idea of "Assemblies of the Commons" as promoted by
Michel Bauwens and the P2P Foundation. A variety of actors involved in
these initiatives have offered to meet for a day of discussion.
This will be an opportunity for actors involved in these processes to share
their experiences, to present and document different practices, and to
better understand the reality of the phenomenon. An analysis of the
practices presented by participants will be put into perspective in the
French institutional context. Questions are open to discussion, including
the nature of these initiatives; their names; potential connections with
already existing initiatives (as yet unnamed Assemblies of the Commons);
and their geographic and thematic dimensions, as examples.
We will also have the opportunity to explore what these initiatives provide
as strategic perspectives for the commons: how do they contribute to
mobilizing commoners and involving inhabitants in the transition?
This event is organized with the support of the P2P Foundation, the
Association VECAM and the Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation for Human
