Near Future Education Lab – Bridging Education & Commons

Some Living Bridges facilitators have been supportive and participatory in the process of Near Future Education Lab. Here is the beginning of the blogpost from artisopensource.net:

First of all: participation. People from 5 continents joined in for an entire week of discussion, representing individuals, organizations, universities, companies, associations, activist groups and, obviously, education hackers from all over the planet.

the final hangout:

LBP – A community in self-empowerment (part 1)

Video content

0. Context question
How can we unleash the huge ressources and the social capital of the Living Bridges Planet community more and more?

1. Challenge
Foster the self-organisation and flow in the community!

2. Solution
Be the commons!
(excourse to the example of everyday commons: kids go sledging and ice skating, the structure of the space is self-organizing – how can we create spaces for facilitation, that function as simple like this?)

3. Conclusion
We have to grow the group awareness about
• self-empowerment
• social capital
• creative ressources

Part 2 will be about more concrete ideas for the self-regulating and -organizing SIA (Social Information Architecture)
