Communities for Commons: Ideas for Engagement

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Volunteer labor is all over the sharing economy. Much of it builds brands and economic value that becomes property of platforms themselves. Building better platforms means more than dialing-up "engagement" – it involves welcoming and supporting volunteer labor in all of its forms. This talk shares two stories, explores the tension of labor for lifestyle and livelihood, and pulls out lessons for cooperative and commons-based platforms.
