The Commonfare Project. Designing to Support Grassroots Welfare Initiatives
This contribution presents the Commonfare /PIE News project, funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 framework program, and the commonfare.net platform, which constitutes the main tool and result of the project. The core project objectives include the promotion of alternative and sustainable forms of bottom-up self-management of the resources, and the development of anti-capitalistic economic models and of participated welfare tools grounded in practices of sharing and cooperation by people and communities. To achieve this objective, social sciences and technology design are combined in a way that displays the potential of interdisciplinary work when focusing on collaborative digital technologies.
