Hello to all,

This summary is to give you an update on the preparation for Commons Space
at the World Social Forum (WSF) in Montreal from August 9 -14. From now on
we will be sending periodic emails so you can keep track of the activities
that are being prepared.

Commons Space will be based at ECTO co-working space in Montreal, located
at 936 Avenue du Mont-Royal E. We will begin with a welcome event on Monday
the 8th, the evening before the World Social Forum begins. Then there will
be 2-3 time slots for smaller activities during the day for Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. These activities will be staggered so as to
complement other World Social Forum events.

To get an idea of what is already being planned by the participants, here
are examples of confirmed sessions for the Commons Space:

·        City as a Commons

·        Panel Discussion for the Commons

·        Wiki & Mapping Sprint

·        Cooperatives and Commons

·        Commons as a New Political Subject

·        Commons, the State and New Political Movements

·        Play Commonspoly!

·        Post-Capitalist Transition Convergence Assembly with other

·        Drafting a Global Commons Charter

·        Social Economy in Montreal

·        School of Data

Commons Space is an official self-managed thematic committee of the WSF,
and is intended to be a space for contributors to collectively build a
program. To see what is in progress and participate in the planning please
contribute to the hackpad:

Do not hesitate to reply with any questions. The general invitation is
attached again for reference if needed.

In solidarity,

Nicole Leonard
