The Green European Foundation is hosting a workshop about digital commons in Brussels, on 9 November 2017, with the support of our partner Etopia.

Context

The commons are driven by citizens’ initiatives, including an increasing amount of digital opportunities as well as new technologies which have the power to transform democracy. This topic will be addressed in the upcoming workshop in Brussels hosted together with Etopia. The event is a part of our ongoing project Reclaim the Commons which aims to explore the transformative power of the commons, whilst involving the Greens and a wider audience around this topic.

Workshop in Brussels

This event will provide insights into the use of blockchain as a technology that reinvents the way citizens think and organise their exchanges. We will analyse Bitcoin as one of the best known examples. Other potentials of these tools will be discussed, especially in the context of contracts, sale of goods and electoral polls.

How can we guarantee access to this technology for everyone? And what new challenges will arise in the future in parallel to development of such tools? These intriguing questions will be discussed by our prominent speakers listed below:

  • Charles Cuvelliez, ULB
  • Claire Balva or Clément Jeanneau, Blockchain France (tbc)
  • Olivier Roucloux, Consultant at Finoryx

Time & Venue

The workshop will be hosted on Thursday, 9 November 2017, from 11h00 to 13h00 in the premises of Etopia in Brussels (Place des Barricades 1, 4th floor).
