Call for an International Roundtable: Cooperation for Open-Source ICT development for Solidarity Economy and Community Currency Systems.
The more Solidarity Economy is growing the more is the need of ICT tools to support it. Platforms to manage a new economy, new monetary and financial structures, which reflect a new way of living are urgently necessary. In the last decades, several tools have been developed, but the fast evolution of technology requires an increasingly expensive cost of maintenance and start-up. A new wave of technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, will increasingly change the digital world and its impact on reality. We think this will be a big opportunity to enhance the resilience and the self-reliance of communities, starting from considering the following Social Innovations which are able to re-shape the world into a fairer place:
First Roundtable. Local Food and Small-scale Retail Channel Networks.
– Community Supported Agriculture,
– Cooperative Agriculture and Farmer Networks,
– Small-scale Retail Channel,
– Local Marketplaces,
– Platform for Purchasing Groups,
– Community Privacy Data Protection.
Second Roundtable. Social and Community Currency Systems.
– Crowdfunding Campaigns and Community Investments (e.g. reward-based, equity-based, donation-based),
– Mutual Credit and Time-banking Systems,
– Reward-based Currency Scheme for Social Projects.
When: from 29/06/2018 to 1/07/2018
