Making Commons Work | Medea Vox

The idea of commons describes practices that rely on sharing and collaboration. But how do you make commons work in practice, and not just in theory?

Traditionally, commons was about sharing natural resources such as land or woods. More recently, the idea of commons is used to describe a growing number of practices that rely on sharing and collaboration, from urban gardening to the production of open source software.

In this Medea Vox episode, design researchers Anna Seravalli and Bianca Elzenbaumer discuss how to work practically with commons and commoning.
