We have been invited to participate in this event at the Foundation for European Progressive Studies in Brussels (I have accepted and will be there to rep Edgeryders):
Was great talking to you yesterday! It’s rather incredible, but I forgot to mention the following. On 10 July, I have a small event at FEPS. From 11:00 to 12:30, we have discussion around a publication of ours on platform work across Europe (estimating size of platform work, and lack of social protection for many etc.). BUT. In the afternoon, from 13:00 to 14:30, we look at a more positive angle on platforms. We want to explore how we can use platform tech for ’the public good’; i.e. improving work-life balance, local economies and community services (based on non-profit, municipal or public/private partnership models). I am looking for good examples that already exist, and I came across ‘Open Care’, which when I click on it, links back to Edgeryders!!! Given this, my question would be the following: would you know of people involved in this, and perhaps somebody that could share their insights on Wednesday 10 July? I would be super-interested. What do they do, what hurdles they experience? How can we help them? We can really make room for someone in the second session.
@marina sent you agenda (file too large to upload here) to let me know if there is anyone in particular we should be connecting with at this event.
