This European Youth Conference took place from the 19th to 21st of May in Belgrade. The event was organised by Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and the Green European Foundation, in cooperation with Share Foundation (Belgrade) and Institute for Political Ecology (Zagreb).

This three-days conference included talks and panel discussions with a focus on the theme of “Internet as a Commons and the New Politics / New Economy of Commoning”. The aim of the event was to provide space for a European debate on how to re-decentralise and reclaim the Internet as a Commons, which also leaves it open to commercial opportunities.

In terms of the programme, the first day provided insights into relevant themes, such as The Copernican Revolution of Copyright Regulation, Digital Commons in New EU Copyright Law, Social Networks as a Commons and more.

The second day consisted of many panel discussions, along with talks related to Knowledge as a Commons – Innovation & Creativity through Open Access, Transformative Power of the Commons and Open Innovation.

During the last day of the conference, the participants analysed Trust & Distrust in Internet Governance, Data PPPs, Selfgoverned Commons, in addition to other relevant topics.
