Policy Proposal Co-Creation

Next steps on Policy Proposals from the commoners

Last update: October 31

Thank you to the participants for submitting almost 25 policy proposal topics through the hackpad for the European Commons Assembly. It’s great that we’ve been able to openly show the different issues we care about and are working on, and make them visible so we can identify potential collaborations and keep working together. This is important work that will continue to feed the European Commons Assembly and commons-based policy making processes into the future, well beyond November 15, 16, and 17 at Brussels. Here we  explain the context of this call for proposals and the next steps:

General context:

All the proposals will be collected and published in the wiki Commons Transition (http://commons.transition.org) by the P2P Foundation as a shared resource of the Assembly.

For the 16th  in Parliament, all the policy proposals will be exposed and 3 will be chosen for discussion by the coordination committee.  The framing of the discussion is: How do we develop commoners action in Europe on the given topic, with the EU institution? How can we  make this proposal real? After a presentation of the topic we open to everyone for elaboration and discussion. We will have 55 minutes for the 3 topics.

Then, on the 17th, when we discuss how to stand in solidarity around our diverse struggles for the commons, the commons-based policy proposals will be a pillar resource for structuring groups on these issues and themes. This meeting and process for the 17th are under construction, but we know it will be an important opportunity to discuss the future direction of the network.

Next steps

So, please:
