Stimulating discussions in Silesia!

Many thanks to Adam Polko for the invitation to share my current work on urban commons at the Economics University in Katowice and hear all about his research on the subject. It was an inspiring few days! I’m excited to head back to the office and incorporate some of the topics we spoke about into the Urban Commons Cookbook. Home stretch!

Urban commons: Why now?

The topic of urban commons is booming. Since we published Urban Commons: Moving beyond State and Market four years ago, there has been a strong increase in projects and publications about urban commons. What is it about the current Zeitgeist that makes now the right time for this topic?

Autumn is conference season!

So August is now over and most people are back from their summer vacations, which means that it’s time to turn our attention to the (very busy) conference season just around the corner. This year, I’ll be doing a whirlwind tour of four countries in four weeks, with topics from urban commons to EU urban policy.
