Commons.fi and visiting RIPESS European coordination team participated at the Pixelache2017 Local and Decentralised Festival. While Commons.fi already was to participate at the festival, the possibility of having the RIPESS team over was a great opportunity to share insights and strengthen the objectives of Commons.fi.
The first workshop Wednesday evening concerned mapping. The discussions revolved mainly around the question of mapping the commons: “why, what, how, and who?”. To begin with, Jason Nardi (RIPESS, Solidarius Italia) illustrated the historical roots of a global movement of solidarity economy in which mapping has been used to visualise various networks on international, regional and sectoral levels.
