#TheNewCommonSense. Forging the Cooperative Digital Economy

November 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm November 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm UTC+0

Germany and online.

At a time of far-reaching economic uncertainty, transformations that previously seemed unthinkable are becoming common sense. Now is the time to explore how cooperative principles help to build democratic digital startups. At #TheNewCommonSense, we will take stock of new platform cooperatives, discuss conducive policy, and focus on commons-oriented platform co-ops. Co-op pioneers, designers, researchers, and technologists will explore the potential of data trusts, cryptocurrencies, token economies, and distributed ledgers. The conference is split into a three-day, in-person event in Berlin, and a set of virtual events, curated by global catalysts. The goal of this year’s PCC conference is to advance an internationalist alliance in support of the cooperative digital economy.

Walking the Cooperative Walk — Diglife First Wednesday

December 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm CET

Inter-coop cooperation.

Looking to help offset pandemic gloom, we’ll celebrate cooperation across cooperatives with a look at the new Meet.Coop, which we are now using for our calls.

DigLife members will talk with Open Co-op’s Oliver Sylvester-Bradley and Hypha Coop’s Benedict Lau about how this virtual meeting cooperative came to be, where it’s going, and how learning from that cooperative effort can inform further inter-coop cooperation.
