Platform Coops – Start your own! Day 2 Programme
10. December 2016 @ 09:00 - 23:00
This event aims at gathering key players of the platform cooperativism movement to explore shared values, common goals and a joint political agenda. Over the course of two days, participants get introduced into cooperative structures – from learning how to start off and run cooperative businesses to exploring visionary ideas about platform coop design and its impact on politics, markets and society at large.
This #platformcoop-event is all about shared ownership, democratic control and self-organization, with an extra focus on blockchain technologies to enable bootstrapping of decentralized organizations.

LANGUAGE: Both the local and the international perspective is important for the platform coop movement. We therefore strive at being as inclusive as possible when it comes to languages. Some of our sessions are in German only, most are in English. The program below clearly flags the language of each session. Regardless of the language of presentation, we welcome feedback, questions and comments in any language and try our best to support with translations.
