Coming up: Reading Circle | Wealth of The Commons


The lovely ladies from Raum B have once again generously given us the use their beautiful bookshop and we are going to host another reading circle this Thursday, 7th of July, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. This time we will read and discuss a text on the commons and the peer-to-peer economy.

If you wonder what all that is, this is the right event to go to! :) There has been a lot of talk about the commons recently, and it seems the right moment to discuss what the term and its philosophy might mean – to individuals, communities, neighbourhoods, and nature as the greater context.

You can find the link to the essay we would like to discuss with you below: PEER-TO-PEER ECONOMY AND NEW CIVILIZATION CENTERED AROUND THE SUSTENANCE OF THE COMMONS by Michel Bauwens & Franco Iacomella. It was published in the book ‚The Wealth of The Commons – A World beyond Market and State‘ (Bollier, Helfrich, eds. 2012) under a Creative Commons license, so it’s free to download, spread, share, read and discuss, as long as it is credited appropriately. Don’t ya just love open-source knowledge sharing! :)

Can’t wait to see you there – we’ll save time at the end for another brainstorm on future classes!

Here the link to the reading material:
