Webinar: Rural commons for thriving mountain community economies

Online event: 29 September 2020


What examples of new practices of commoning and community economies are there, which contribute to the creation of resilient and empowering commons? How can traditional commons be innovated to thrive in contemporary conditions so that they can continue to be agents of liveable alpine territories? Who are the new stewards and activators of the commons?
