We have identified three key areas to which reports and speeches are encouraged to adhere to. These main areas are: work, commons, democracy.
We will open each day introducing and laying-out the framework of the discussion, to address it in such a way as to allow a coherent comparison and confront between the different points of view.
In addition, we identified some analytical perspectives we would like to get through over the three central days: every speaker will be asked explicitly to deal with their theme (be it commons, work or democracy) considering whenever possible the following analysis grid: spaces, times and imaginary.
Spaces: the places, territory, ecosystems and relations between different places on Earth. The spaces of daily relations, sacred spaces, degraded spaces, spaces to safeguard or reinvent, taking care of infrastructure.
Times: the time for living, leisure and working, regarding oneself and the others. The time to produce, reproduce and maintain. How to keep in a circle past present and future. The time to meet, share, listen, and mediate. The time to take charge of one’s own time.
Imaginary: the frames through which we think of reality, society, human beings and their needs and desires. The notion of poverty and wealth, well-being and well-living. Degrowth as a change of these frame.
