This online workshop is designed to:
  • overcome the scarcity of time available at the in-person Forum, by expanding the communication space to 5 days before and 5 days after it
  • generate useful input to the Forum from the online contributions from around the country and the world, by bringing to and distributing a summary of them at the on-site conversation

http://thefutureofoccupy.org/2012/02/13/a-commons-inspired-occupy-theory-of-collective-action/
  • How can OWS foster a politics of the commons? Or a politics AS commons?
  • What interaction between “thinking” and “doing” is needed?
  • How can Occupy occupy the strategy space and equip itself with the organizational, material and intellectual resources it needs for helping the 99% win?
  • How can those interested to learn thinking together better, faster, and more strategically, form and benefit from a strategy-focused knowledge commons?

Explore the practical difference that a Commons-approach can make in the daily work of Occupy, here:
