- Following up on policy making panel/group. Wrote to person in Milano, waiting for reply. See how they would like to approach the session. Case of mobility ramps (co-design with citizens). Is there something specifically we can do with civil servants around the table?
- The third community fellow is known. It’s Francis from Woodbine health. Theme on living and working well together. Quite radical. They might bring in interesting people. He’ll be in for the community calls soon. Check out Woodbine Health Autonomy Center and their latest blog post.
- Had a chat with Kat Austen: infrastructure design kit
- How big a space needed for a design workshop? Is 2 days too much? We need more information posted.
- Funding for DIY projects : Lucy’s session - what else is out there?
- [Kat's] previous work with OpenDroplet is no longer going due to funding not available anymore. This ties in with the funding question.
- Ken is able to come. He works on IoT in agriculture.
- Proposal: a day of IoT stuff? Could be, but it needs a structure to move from fast project introduction to actually collaborating.
- Harvesting insights from the festival:
- Organise sessions and people around big questions, and then have the different themes contribute their answers to that.
- We need sessions on the same question across the different themes: Funding in diy projects separately from Funding in policy etc doesn’t make sense! We should get a post up on the forum for that, and combine with another call.
- Also it may help to tie together diverse sessions if there are some theme-level questions that each session contributes to answering. Perhaps even generating further questions that may suggest useful ongoing lines of ongoing enquiry.
Bernard has many things to choose from:
- Homelessness - Doing workshops with people who need housing; hosting them in Pat’s Tiny Houses.
- StreetNurses in Brussels
- Videos on mental health and collaborating with “caution and passion”; work with videographers; same with dementia. - part of UnMonastery
- Ecohack: Pat & Ken & co. to present their work on that
Gehan: still thinking deeply about the theme
- Policies are not bad in and of themselves, but they are flawed can be improved.
- Examples of policies that enable / disrupt citizen responses care work
- Drawing on systems theory
- Humanity has a lot of genuine impulses around care, and policies can disrupt that.
- Check http://procomuns.net/en/program/ in relation to open care
- Thought this session looked relevant - City Challenges: Economics of care. "To what extent do digital platforms and collaborative methodologies cover the field of care, or can they be applied and respond to the needs that exist in the field of the care economy?"
- Technology infrastructure and blockchain for a common collaborative economy. "We will introduce new technological tools within our reach and discuss technological strategies to then dynamically debate (with “balls”) about the potential (or not) of blockchain to promote the procommon collaborative economy."
