In this section, we are compiling policy proposals that are specifically oriented around commons.

We endorse the proposal by Joseph Cederwall: A Global New Deal For The Commons [1]

Introduction

Five Basic Design Principles for the Urban Commons

Christian Iaione and Sheila Foster:

"We have distilled five key design principles for the urban commons:

  • Principle 1: Collective governance refers to the presence of a multi-stakeholder governance scheme whereby the community emerges as an actor and partners up with at least three different urban actors
  • Principle 2: Enabling State expresses the role of the State in facilitating the creation of urban commons and supporting collective action arrangements for the management and sustainability of the urban commons.
  • Principle 3: Social and Economic Pooling refers to the presence of different forms of resource pooling and cooperation between five possible actors in the urban environment
  • Principle 4: Experimentalism is the presence of an adaptive and iterative approach to designing the legal processes and institutions that govern urban commons.
  • Principle 5: Tech Justice highlights access to technology, the presence of digital infrastructure, and open data protocols as an enabling driver of collaboration and the creation of urban commons."

Key Concepts

  • The Global Urban Commons Stack, a proposal for leagues of cities, associated with cooperatives, ethical finances and other actors of generative business practice, to create global open design depositories (which we call Protocol Cooperatives, to mutualize the basic urban provisioning systems.
  • Public-Commons Partnership protocols for cooperation between the public sector and commons-based collectives seeking to improve the common good of the city. ‎See also the report on the topic by Commonwealth UK: Public-Common Partnerships: Building New Circuits of Collective Ownership. By Keir Milburn and Bertie Russell. Manchester, UK: Commonwealth, 2019

Status of city-based commons transitions

  • The Commons Transition plan for the City of Ghent was crafted in 2017. See for the official dutch version: [3]

For context, see our P2P Foundation Report: Changing Societies through Urban Commons Transitions. By Michel Bauwens and Vasilis Niaros. P2P Foundation and Heinrich Boll Foundation, 2017 [4] This is a more reflexive document on the experience in Ghent, with chapter 3 focusing on Ghent itself.

  • The city of Seoul is in the process of inquiring how to move from the paradigm of a sharing city, to that of a commons city. Activities may be planned for 2020.
  • List of specific Commons Labs: Antwerp, Belgium ; The Hague, Netherlands [5]

P2P Foundation Reports

Key Quotes

We need to couple private sufficiency and public luxury

"The new approach could start with the idea of private sufficiency and public luxury. There is not enough physical or environmental space for everyone to enjoy private luxury: if everyone in London acquired a tennis court, a swimming pool, a garden and a private art collection, the city would cover England. Private luxury shuts down space, creating deprivation. But magnificent public amenities – wonderful parks and playgrounds, public sports centres and swimming pools, galleries, allotments and public transport networks – create more space for everyone at a fraction of the cost.

Wherever possible, such assets should be owned and managed by neither state nor market, but by communities, in the form of commons. A commons in its true form is a non-capitalist system in which a resource is controlled in perpetuity by a community for the shared and equal benefit of its members."

- George Monbiot [7]
