15.11.18 Local govt in the 21st century - enkel collective

82 views

Published on

We live in a world of rapid change with big shifts in many areas of society. Large Silicon Valley corporations deliver services that government traditionally has delivered, and exponential technology development makes it increasingly difficult for government and legislators to keep up.

Furthermore, we have in the past years seen an increasing distrust in political institutions on all levels. One consequence of this is a global movement of citizen-led societal innovation through initiatives such as makerspaces, repair cafés, tool libraries, co-operatives and community sharing through social media. I.e. citizens begin to take things in their own hands.

  66. 66. FUNDING? Not much funding available for a commons transition in WA but there are grants and money in other related fields like activation, smart cities, community, sustainability, innovation.
  67. 67. WHAT’S IN IT FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT? • Community Building • Mitigating environmental and social problems which from globalisation. • Participatory Democracy, empowerment, sense of “ownership” and being able to decide the future of the city. • Resilience, self-sufficiency • Smart cities • Cost savings for Local Govt
  68. 68. BECOME A PARTNER CITY A state form that enables and empowers the social creation of value by its citizens. Here, government acts like a "facilitator" rather than taking a traditional top-down approach.
  69. 69. DISCUSS AROUND YOUR TABLE What can WA local governments do to respond to the new demands of citizens as commoners and reinforce initiatives? How can we turn city users into city makers? What may be the role of local government in facilitating a social- ecological transition? What institutional adaptations would favour such a role?
  70. 70. NEXT STEPS Michel Bauwens from the p2p Foundation, who has assisted in many commons transitions initiatives across the world, suggests the following initial steps: 1. Map what’s already there. Who is doing good work in your place? What are they doing? Where? 2. Make a common transitions plan
