This is the first episode of the series Charging the Commons and it will center around the process of becoming a commons — communities that share their resources such as energy, a garden, cars, a laundry room, etc. What does establishing such a community entail? What steps does a group of people need to go through in order to become a commons? This early setup stage can profoundly shape the development process of such communities, for instance: its (economic) viability, the management of the shared resources, everyday practices, members’ relationship with each other or the community affiliation with the broader environment. Exploring the process of becoming a commons (becommoning) can reveal useful insights: Which multiple factors hinder or stimulate commons initiatives? How are challenges (not) addressed? Which external actors can support sharing communities?
