In collaboration with the society and environment student association GISER, the School of Sustainability invites students and researchers alike, to discuss the latest developments in commons research and research opportunities.
Panel 1: Reflections in the “Common Pool” Visioning and inclusivity in local community-based commons, with three case studies from (1) municipal-level collaboration for water security during climate change, (2) integrative design processes for common-pool resources, and (3) place-making through urban riparian restoration.
Panel 2: Global Commons, Intractable Governance? Applying lessons learned from local governance systems to international applications has been much debated but found little application. We provide three instances in which the study of the commons can usefully provide insights into intractable global issues, such as biodiversity losses, climate change adaptation, and the world-wide impact of international tourism.
Panel 3: Our Commons Future The study of the commons is spreading to new application domains from health and education to digital space and outer space. What are the emerging themes and opportunities?
Lunch will be served.
