New Economy Network Australia: Protecting and Nurturing Our “Affected Commons”

About this event

Join us for a discussion about the ‘invisible commons’, created by the processes of people working together.

Our understanding of what is a commons has expanded considerably over the past 10 years. Commons have been described as resource-based, digital, urban, and of shared knowledge to name a few. More recently work has been done to understand commons which are invisible to the eye, yet as fundamental to human well-being as clean water and safe food. The Affective Commons is one of these, the understanding of which is just emerging.

Dr. Julian Waters-Lynch describes ”Such a commons [as] the atmospheric product of the immaterial labour of Coworkers, including the ‘commoning’ processes by which the community endorsed in accounts of the appeal of Coworking may manifest.” In this conversation we hear from researchers and practitioners in this domain on how we can protect and nurture Affective Commons for the benefit of our communities & society.
