Commoners uit het hele land komen Donderdag 13 Juli 2017 samen in TivoliVredenburg voor de Nederlandse Commons Assembly. In Utrecht, want daar eindigt die avond de Internationale Commons Conferentie (IASC2017). Een kans voor Nederlandse pioniers én internationale commoners om elkaar te ontmoeten. We zetten de Nederlandse commons op de kaart! Vanuit Pakhuis de Règâh gaat er ook een delegatie naar Nederlandse Commons Assembly De Meent Meet-Up. Ga mee!

Over De Meent
De Meent is hét verbindende platform tussen commoners, academici en politiek, om het commons denken verder te promoten in Nederland, om uiteindelijk het systeem grondig te hervormen richting een commons based samenleving.

In de praktijk betekent dit dat we de belangen van commoners willen behartigen, soms met een campagne, soms met expertise, soms met lobby, en dat we een ontmoetingspek willen zijn voor commoners zodat zij kennis en ervaringen kunnen uitwisselen.

Onze doelen zijn:
* Het gedachtegoed van de commons, in de breedste zin, verspreiden in Nederland;

* Het op de politieke agenda zetten van de commons als alternatief voor bestaande economische en bestuurlijke structuren;

* Het zichtbaar maken van de verhalen van commoners in Nederland;

* Het faciliteren van ontmoetingen tussen commoners;

* Het praktisch ondersteunen van commoners in Nederland.

On Thursday the 13th of July, commoners from all over The Netherlands get together in TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht for the launch of the Dutch Commons Assembly. The assembly, aptly named ‘De Meent’ (a reference to the old Dutch word for commons), is a platform for commons pioneers, thinkers and policy makers.

De Meent wants to advocate the commons based principles in society at large. The platform intends to also be a supporter for commoners, by lobbying, campaigning and offering expertise.

De Meent above all is meeting point for commoners. A place where people can exchange ideas and experiences, to celebrate the commons!

The event in Utrecht is co-inciding with the International Conference for the Commons, the IASC2017, where commons thinkers from all over the world will come together for a whole week. The Dutch Commons Assembly in TivoliVredenburg will be a good chance for Dutch pioneers and activists and international experts to meet up and connect.

De Meent co-founders are Sophie Bloemen, Christiaan Fruneaux, Thomas de Groot, Socrates Schouten, Joachim Meerkerk, Melissa Koutouzis, Bart Cosijn and Jelle de Graaf. We warmly welcome you to join us for this very special night.

De Meent was founded as a spin-off from the European Commons Assembly, which first convened in the European Parliament in Brussels in November of 2016.

Our Goals:
To promote commons based thinking in The Netherlands;
To advocate for commons based policies and commons based economic practices;
To tell the stories of Dutch commoners, and to put them on the map;
To facilitate encounters and exchange between Dutch commoners;
To further develop the commons narrative and discourse, to make technological, legal and organisational knowledge more accessible;
To actively support commons in their endeavours to start co-ops and other commons initiatives by offering legal, political, financial, technological and organisational expertise.

OuiShare Fest 2017 in Paris Cities of the world UNITE

Ouishare Fest Paris 2017 CITIES OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
When:       5-7 of July 2017

OuiShare Fest Paris 2017 Smart City Impact City The Hague Pakhuis de Regah Pakhuis de Reiger Pakhuis de Zwijger in Den Haag
For its 5th edition,  OuiShare Fest Paris, 5-7 July, places cities at the center of attention.
Can cities be the basis of democratic renewal? Will they find ways to conquer a political weight proportional to their demographic and economic power? Can global networks of cities take over from an exhausted international system? As a Platform for the city/of the citizens of The Hague Pakhuis de Règâh can’t miss out on this opportunity. Pleas join us! Or follow us throught #OSFest17 

For this 5th edition, we invite cities and citizens with cutting-edge tools and radical solutions to join forces and build new alliances in order to achieve systemic change. Pakhuis de Règâh was invited to join. And so we will travel with a team of Smart Citizens to Paris.

OuiShare Fest is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and connect with the people building the society of tomorrow. You’ll find a mix of entrepreneurial spirit and free minded people like nowhere else in the world, making it a great place for innovators of all kind.

We believe that new ways of thinking are needed to find solutions to the complex issues of our time. To create and foster a fertile ground for new ideas, we bring together entrepreneurs, innovative leaders and decision makers from a variety of countries and encourage them to confront their different perspectives through workshops and participative sessions.

OuiShare Fest is known for not only being a place of inspiration, but where valuable connections are made – for both your professional and personal life. The event is carefully designed to make connecting with others surprisingly effortless, whatever tribe they belong to.

Private dinners for deeper connections, live performances to spark conversations, music and dance to celebrate… OuiShare Fest does not only challenge attendees intellectually, but aims to invigorate their mind, body and soul.

The first OuiShare Fest was held in Paris in 2012. Since then, OuiShare has spread across Europe, North & Latin America and the Middle East. Since OuiShare Fest is open source, OuiShare communities around the world have created their own OuiShare Fests: Colaboramerica was first held in Rio in 2016, Barcelona has already held two OuiShare Fests and Montreal launched Eco2Fest in 2016.
