EducationCommons -- Networking and discussion of educational intitiatives for the commons


About EducationCommons
English (USA)

The list should not only serve us to harvest the results of the International Commons Conference in Berlin, but subsequently create a climate of ongoing networking between parallel efforts.

The main topics and tasks could be:

* Producing and enhancing educational materials to promote the idea of the commons in all levels, so to say from Kindergarten to University (and in all aspects, psychological, ethical, economical, sociological, ecological)
* Help us to mitigate the fragmentation of free and open educational resources available from many sources (deplored during the conference by some) and their transformation into sustainable and sustained commons, help us identify their usefulness especially for local-regional commons development
* Discuss the infrastructural and institutional ways to facilitate this knowledge exchange - maybe also the birth of new and unconventional educational institutions or coalitions on the local, regional and global level which cater to communities and commoning individuals.
