The Green European Foundation is hosting a workshop about digital commons in Warsaw, on 04 November 2017, with the support of our partner Strefa Zieleni.


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 Warsaw hosted together with Strefa Zieleni. 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. This event will focus on democracy and participation, and how digital tools can and should be utilised to facilitate the involvement of citizens and to guarantee transparency.
