How to participate?
You can participate in the Constellation of the Commons by putting in common your time or materials that feed the contents of this space.
- Contributing Content
- A video-interview of a self-managed community of practice (following a model of questions we will provide you).
- An entry into the Codiccionario (Codictionary)
- A resource to amplify understanding of the commons
- A pedagogical unit or dynamic class with CC material.
- Your ideas and suggestions.
2. Contributing Work
Why can’t I upload my own content?
The CC is a pseudo-democratic channel, in the sense that anyone can participate by sending content but the upload of the materials must be mediated, since the CC does not have the capacity of a Wikipedia (there is no Foundation behind that ensures its sustainability). We keep the tool on the Carleton College server with a team that will update it.
If you’re someone dedicated to teaching in a formal or informal environment, perhaps you’d like to use this page as if it was your textbook. If activities or dynamic classes with this material occur to you, we’d be grateful if you would send us a report of how you’ve used these contents as a tool. What you send us will appear with your name under the Resources section, and it will be open to be reproduced. We want the open classroom to be a place to socialize and share educational experiences regarding the culture of the commons.
If you are a person dedicated to academic research and would like to volunteer your time working on the tool or donating concepts for the co-op, do not hesitate to send us an email. If you use these materials in any way in your own research we would love to give an account of your results in the resources section.
Communities of self-managed practices and social activists
If you are a self-managed community, you consider that the activity that is carried out in your space responds to the culture of the commons and you would like to send content to nurture the tool or see your story included in this group of stories, contact us at through this email firstname.lastname@example.org.
