Register now for the Urban Commons School!

26. August 2021 0 By Eva Neukirchner

What are commons? Why do we need community based cooperatives? How can we shape an urban-living-together in a social, democratic and inclusive way? And create a sustainable future for everyone? These are the questions we seek to discuss and experience with our U!REKA partners at the Urban Commons School.

When? 6 – 9 October 2021
Where? Offenes Haus der Kulturen, Frankfurt, Germany
hosted by Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences

We are working on a diverse program with research panels, student workshops, exhibitions and a varied evening program. In the research panels, experts will give insights on different Urban Commons themes and will work together with students on current issues that arise in these fields. We also want to bring the commons spirit to the event with student initiatives.

Highlights include

  • Research panels on community and governing, housing and technology, culture and arts
  • Excursion on commoning architecture in Frankfurt
  • Lectures on fascinating projects
  • Dance and music performances

The Urban Commons school is planned as a hybrid event with both visiting international speakers and students and online participation. If the pandemic situation permits, we would be glad to welcome many students and lecturers and other interested persons in Frankfurt.
