Platform Cooperativism Conference 2016
* Conference: November 11-13, 2016, “Platform Cooperativism: Building The Cooperative Internet” , The New School and Civic Hall in New York City.
"On November 11-13, 2016, “Platform Cooperativism: Building The Cooperative Internet” will take place at The New School and Civic Hall in New York City.
On Day 1, we will bring together an international group of policymakers to discuss regulation and investment in alternative models. In the afternoon, we’ll think through the legal and design implications of the cooperative platform economy.
On Day 2, discussions will focus on global opportunities for convergence among worker resistance, unions, and cooperatives. How can online co-ops meet some of the platform economy’s challenges that the labor movement has struggled with?
On Sunday, Day 3 an unconference co-sponsored and hosted by our partner Civic Hall will allow for an open stream of project proposals for the platform co-op space.
Building the basis for a popular movement in support of a fairer cooperative digital economy requires countless people, projects, inventive organizations, publications, and events around the world. “Platform Cooperativism: Building The Cooperative Internet” will be part of this effort. Join us online and in person."
