Following the first meeting of European Commons Assembly (ECA) in Brussels in November 2016, ECA will hold another assembly in Madrid in October 2017.
ECA is a trans-local European coalition for solidarity in commoning. We focus on thematics relating to the urban commons through visits, workshops, and activities with local groups in Madrid, and feature joint programming with the Transeuropa Festival.
Transeuropa is a political, cultural and artistic event that will examine Europe as a territory for experimentation with commons. It is cross-sectorial, including a wide range of actors from civil society to city government, from journalists to artists and urban gardeners to scientists.
The Assembly will focus on the urban commons, with parts of the program corresponding to different themes such as urban commons, solidarity economy, platform economy, knowledge commons, internet infrastructure, and territorial commons.
