Re-energizing the City: A comparative analysis of urban commons initiatives

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference, workshop, ...-


The aim of this workshop is to compare and discuss how local initiatives have regained ownership of a consumption space through innovative commoning interventions. The workshop is loosely connected to a broader Urban Management conference on ‘Participation Fatigue’, whereby we specifically seek to understand how local initiatives have avoided or overcome participation fatigue in their efforts to re-energize urban consumption spaces and find a new balance in their usage. Three central questions will guide workshop conversations: 1. What was the origin of stagnation in possible earlier commoning processes that led to an imbalance in ownership? 2. Which intervening processes or events contributed to re-energizing the group of stakeholders in the local situation? 3. What lessons are transferable to other cases that struggle with similar stagnations?
