During the whole month of February 2017, we released and advertised five videos realized during the ECA in Brussels in November 2016.
We used various channels:
the ECA website, You tube and twitter account,
the P2P Foundation blog, You Tube, FB and Twitter accounts
the European Alternatives FB
the ECF FB.
The videos were released one by one each Wednesday on all platforms. This was tagged as "Wednesday Commonsday".
Using this network and a coordinated action, we reached thousands of people on various platforms, and got 100+ more followers on Twitter. Our audience is 55-45% Male-Female and mostly interested in Politics, business, science and tech news.
This network is an operational and efficient way to get attention on ECA activities and grow the network.
Followers on twitter
in January, the number of followers was ca. 315. End of March, the number of followers is 435. (Figure below is a screen shot made in February).
well illustrated by the number of impressions obtained by our tweets during each Wednesday Commonsday (screen shot in February, see below for next period):
Here is a screen shot made in March on our analytics tools in Twitter, that shows the interest and gender balance of our audience.
Most Europeans live in cities and many of these cities are suffering from acute housing challenges, as well as environmental, multicultural integration and urban decay problems. How can we treat the city as a place that belongs to all its residents and that is governed and functions in accordance with their needs?
In this video, Sophie Ghyselen, Marco Clausen, Nicolas Krausz, David Juarez and others are reviewing the opportunities that commons initiative offer in terms of food production, common space and habitat.
Nicole undefinedWe are postpoining the texts of David Gabriel - the urban commons proposal, which Stacco said might work better as a blog post, and the Social and Solidarity proposal of Ana Margarida. (The Welfare commons text is also postponed til the end of next week).
Nicole undefinedFood is treated as a private good in today's industrial food system.In order to transition towards a more sustainable and fairer system, food must be re-conceived as a common good. If we were to treat food as a commons, it could be better produced and distributed by hybrid tri-centric governance systems implemented at the local level and compounded by market rules, public regulations, and collective actions. This change would have enormous ethical, legal, economic, and nutritional implications for the global food system.
The problem with the idea of food as a commons is that just few people has specifically stated and justified that approach, and very few from the academic point of view. You can also include the following links:
