A session starting from the shared assumption of a scenario (regarding distributed manufacturing) where we produce less and in a very different way, where only competences constitute an asset in place of machineries.
That scenario will be characterized by the persistence of a high quality production hybridized with the world of intelligent/interactive technologies, where artisans and makers will work together.
In that world, there won’t be room for the majority of current active small companies, though they are depositaries of a deep and structured knowledge. How could we help those SMEs to be part of the future? How to integrate manufacturing capability with knowledge sharing and valorization?
We’ll showcase a few experiences and tools oriented to extract value from technical knowledge, sharing traditional proceedings and actions aimed to transform small companies in open-common facilities.
The workshop will be composed by the following tasks/activities:
Goals definition: how to integrate manufacturing SMEs revenues generated by producing with knowledge sharing and valorization actions;
Definition of lines of action by thematic and systemic areas;
Definition of the instrument: a toolkit made by a series of actions by sector, case histories and operational modalities with annexed examples of services/platforms/projects useful for effective work;
OUTPUT: a prototype to be graphically designed and built as a booklet with strategies explanation. the toolkit will need to be tested and validated in the next 3 months with a few companies from different countries and from different sectors. > report and feedback > public launch early 2016.
Are we on the edge of a new era of collaboration? Where did the new paradigme come from and how does it disrupt the way we understand, learn and create knowledge and science?
This documentary is a curious journey into the refractive surfaces inevitably occurring when change is stirring the previous ways of doing and redering old practices obsolete. Are you prepared for the changes we are all facing? Because it is how you use the new technology that will shape the way it grows and set the tone of what's possible in the future.
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control estimates that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) results each year in 25,000 deaths and related costs of over € 1,5 billion in healthcare expenses and productivity losses. Globally multiresistant Tubercolosis causes 450,000 new infections annualy, common antimicrobials against urinary tract infections became ineffective and last resort treatments have been confirmed ineffective against Gonorrhoea in many countries.
Meanwhile the antibiotic development pipelines of pharma companies have dried out. Newly market approved antimicrobials have dropped from 16 in 1985 to 0 since 2010. WHO warns that the current antimicrobia crisis could bring "the end of modern medicine as we know it".
Antimicrobial resistance is much more a social than a technical challenge. It is a direct result of our increasingly urbanized society, fed by large scale animal farming, equiped with centralized waste water treatment, and abuse of prescription drugs.
BioStrike is an ongoing project in a collective of Do It Yourself Biotechnologists (DIYBio) aiming to solve this tragedy of the commons. At festivals, community labs, schools and universities popup events were held. A collaborative online tool, a "Community Starter Kit" and a workshop format are in development to synergize efforts.
This is how it works
First, you will decide on a design question. Then you invent and prototype an innovation to turn your vision into a reality. At the same time you’ll come up with a story of how your idea comes into the world. Playing cards guide you to write a narrative with obstacles and drama, a climax, and some cyber punk if you want. To win this game, everyone is required to co-operate, not compete.
A bit of theory
The narrative design of the workshop is modelled after Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. Both the story’s protagonist and each participant are heroes and heroines. Their paths become entwined as they tell their story while working out a solution to their shared problem. At the same time the participants are guided through a typical design process. This involves user-centric methods, such as formulating a problem statement, investigating stakeholders and context, brainstorming and rapidly prototyping ideas. Following a narrative, the workshop game resembles a typical design process, which works because story and design draw on the same principles to create meaning. A story follows four steps: challenge, conquer, change and prevail. A design process follows four similar steps: analyze, ideate, develop, test.
Marjorie invites you to an Ashtanga Yoga initiation, that will allow the body to purify and both reinforce and stabilise the nervous system. As such, this practice tones and structures the body, therefore permitting it to develop a physical and energetic balance.
The course will focus on breathing (pranayama), consequently, on the practice of energetic portals (bandha) and postures (asana) and, finally, on relaxation (shavasana).
Besides teaching yoga, Marjorie is also a dance instructor, a professional dancer and a performer. She has worked with numerous choreographers in both France and abroad and is currently developing her own yoga and choreographic projects.
In this new era of technological transition, decentralized technologies are gaining more and more adoption. Often regarded as a means to promote individual autonomy and civil liberties, the same technologies could (and already have been) used by centralized entities, in order to further their power. Blockchain technologies come along with new promises of decentralization and emancipation, but can they actually resist the incumbents from the past?
The vast majority of business models are volume-based. The more a company wants to earn money the more it has to sell units of products or services.
This quest for volume shows its limits when markets saturate: higher pressure on price, rising costs, erosion of margin, deadlocks in terms of resources consumption, hindrance to release disruptive innovation, intensification of work with resulting health issues on people, … The only option to go beyond these limits is to change the fundamental nature of business models to shift from a volume to a value-based logic.This speech will introduce functional and cooperation economy as a promising innovation on business model to create positive synergies between financial success, environmental improvements and social benefits.
The Web was supposed to free us all and empower each of us. Instead, we end up losing control of our software and data as silos take over them. Vendor lock-in, user profiling, mass surveillance is what we end up with. And it's going to get worse if we don't take the matter into our own hands.The topic of this talk is to discuss how we can do this - by using Free and Open Source Software, spreading crypto, running our own servers, creating protocols, finding alternative business models to targeted advertising.
John Lennon once said “A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is reality”. So what does a “sharing economy” really mean to you ?

Manolie will introduce you into the world of QI Gong, the art of movement in the thought of the eastern traditions, beginning with a moment of profound relaxation and self-presence.
Next, exercises of movement and opening of the joints will be performed in order to loosen progresively the corporal tensions.
The subsequent movements (of Wei Dan) are designed to activate the large muscle groups, are centred on breathing, based on self-massage and self-awareness of the senses, all this to assess the energy within the body.
Manolie is a professional choreographer and QI Gong/Nei Gong certified instructor at the Zhi Rou Jia school.
In this session, both Harmen van Sprang (initiator of Amsterdam Sharing City) and Nils Roemen (initiator of Nijmegen Sharing City) will share with you their insights and experience on what it might take to make a sharing or collaborative city.
Although Nils is a grassroots guy and Harmen more of a grasstops guy, they both see their cities as a playground. A place where on the one hand you have to work with all sorts of stakeholders and on the other hand you just want to start building that sharing society with your own hands. Sometimes literally, for example by trying to build a house on sharing principles or creating a co-working space with no money involved.
There are two sides to the story of designing a sharing city and both are valuable. What can Nils and Harmen learn from each other in their approaches in their own cities? What can you learn from their experience and experiments? And even more important: what common insights can we gather and share with other cities all over the world?
This session is not only about sharing cities. This session is also about collaborating and creating succesful projects, big or small. A real life think tank with a whole lot of doing.
What types of peer/collaborative technologies are best placed to improve the work of the humanitarian sector? How could these technologies be applied in a scalable experiment to improve humanitarian response?
Join-in to explore the disruptive solutions to these social issues in the SenseFiction workshop, focused on devising new applications that could be pursued to make humanitarian responses more effective, safe, responsive, cheaper or creative by applying the knowledge of collaborative systems and peer technology.
In the old greek there were six different words for Love. What are the assumptions, biases and myths that we bring to love? How do we expand our ideas of love beyond romantic love and monogamy? Love confessions will explore the possibilities of hacking our own ideas about love to collect different impressions and possibilities of loving. What does love means for you? In this session will use visual inputs to open a mindful space conversation about the topic.
Next december, 20.000 diplomats will converge toward Paris for COP21, the 21st U.N. climate summit, in what is announced as yet another very last chance to save us all. But over the last 20 summits of this kind, the worldwide co2 emissions have doubled.Ahead of this, 100+ makers, designers, engineers, and more, will join forces this summer for a unique 5-week innovation camp of co-living and co-making, in an old french castle. Together, they will create 12 open and sustainable products “sexy like Apple but open like Linux”, in the areas of energy, housing, food, mobility and the circular economy. And then showcased to the world ahead and during the climate summit, in a unique blend of “IKEA Catalog” and Whole Earth Catalog.
During this keynote, the firs 7 projects participating to the POC21 innovation camp will be revealed, as well our plans for the immediate and long-term future.
Look around. The way work gets done is changing. Work is being reduced into smaller pieces, altering the practice both for organisations that buy work and for professionals delivering work for pay.
Fundamental societal changes, unprecedented economic uncertainty and global megatrends are changing the way employment works and how people connect with work towards greater dynamism. A growing shift has started where organisations are less compelled to own resources, but place more value on access to networks and talent pools, utilising independent services and external knowledge transfer on an as-needed basis.The evolving workforce is a mixture of full-time employees, contractors, freelancers, and – increasingly – people with no formal ties to your organisation at all, the open source talent or crowdsourcing model. This trend will ultimately rewrite what the term workforce actually means.
The Near Future of School workshop is based on a light-design thinking process in order to design a crowdfunding campaign for a school project related to entrepreneurship and increase its impact on students and backers.
The project object of the workshop is coming from the work that a Mini Entreprise from Junior Achievement has done in several schools during last year. It’s a one-year entrepreneurial project developed by students within a complete entrepreneurial process from idea to conception using a learning by doing philosophy.
Participants of the workshop will use their creativity and experiences working together with personas, brainstorming and team working in order to define a list of rewards and communication actions that will share the benefic outputs of the project with its stakeholder.
In its OuiShare edition the workshop aims to give participants occasion to learn new tools and understand how crowdfunding can bring outside of school walls the impact generated.
Moreover, it will be a prototype of collaboration between School Raising and JA.

Legacy companies have been eager to understand new mobilities for quite a long time. But now that there is some clear evidence (we might still discuss it) that« digital transition » is happening in mobility and automotive, more and more of those companies are willing to « embrace » these new mobilities.
There are various ways for them to do it, but one that these legacy companiescommonly refers to is partnering with entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs. Our aim in this session is to explore together various ways to work with legacy companies toscale up the most promising services in new mobility. We will discuss with our panel of entrepreneurs their views and experience of the pitfalls and how they could be mitigated, but the opportunities for startups in working with large andlegacy companies.
Moved by the uneasy inquiry of 'how can we change our own cultural patterns in our groups, organisations and the social realm?', this workshop will invite our curiosity about the metamorphosis in our collective responsibility of sense-making. Although we have already created high technologies and other sharing tools, we are still facing big challenges towards a ‘collaborative culture’. We are in this leap of a great transition and we still need to break many patterns, unravel some layers and re-understand ourselves, our actions and relationships.
It is a perceptual shift - seeing ourselves anew - and my attempt is to navigate through play, reflection and transformation in a workshop format rooted in how we can activate other intelligences beyond just brain-based methods – for example our body, mind and senses. “Re-creating Collective Meanings” integrates reflective thinking with playfulness to cultivate a way of knowing that embraces thinking, feeling, sensing and intuition. By weaving all this in the exploration of other sources, we will access the transformation process of meanings we share everyday (and possible create new ones).
Our aim is to co-explore what are the challenges in the intersubjective level for a cultural transition towards collaborative values and, also, to ask ourselves why we are not prepared yet. Where are the sensitive triggers for effective change, from which enable us to co-create new meanings of life?
This is documentary film about collaborative consumption and the spread of sharing practices in Barcelona, Malmö and London and interviews with experts. We see hands-on examples of sharing – tool pools, platforms for sharing of consumer goods, open DIY repair shops, bicycle kitchens, clothing libraries, peer-to-peer car sharing and co-working spaces. In the film initiators, users, experts and public officials describe their view of the collaborative economy, its potentials and prospects for the future.
The film is made by Lotta Ekelund, film maker and Karin Bradley, researcher. The film will be followed by a short discussion on the impacts and future of the collaborative economy.
Yann will present the conditions to build sustainable new Commons of Knowledge in a regime of cognitive capitalism.
Collaborative economy and P2P practices are growing in many parts of the world economy, greatly as a response to the many unresolved social challenges, accentuated by the global economic crisis. The aim of this workshop will be to think collaboratively about P2P experiences in different parts of the world and see how these can respond and resolve commonly faced social issues.Participants will be asked to map P2P initiatives active in their different cities/countries, as well as create a different map of social challenges, at either global, national or local level. The purpose of the group activity will be to assign opportunities from P2P experiences to social challenges and come up with a set of solutions to the most commonly faced social issues.
Many well intended people, initiatives and organizations started and are continuously starting to produce maps of projects, initiatives and commons in their own interest. This includes i.e. sharing activities, free harvestable trees in the countryside, ecovillages, coworking spaces, cargo bikes (for lending), give boxes, startup projects and non-profit initiatives.
There are many non-connected maps, and the data, for example in the same field of interest, is not accessible for initiatives in the same field in another place (e.g. a broad variety of maps for community gardens is existing, and not connected).
We work to bring them together in a collaborative P2P digital commons project.
The mélange of actors is exciting and helpful to meet needs "beyond the market", to enable people to engage their personal scope in these fields locally with a diverse spectrum, or bridging regions on one specific topox and connect to initiatives of same interests or neighbourhoods to make fair use of their common goods.

The course of Charles will focus on working on the self-awareness of the body and its contact with the surroundings, the common thread being breathing as a permanent basis, which is closely linked to our movements. It’s all about breathing, ligning up and loosening up the body, and putting the mind at rest. Being in harmony with the Conscience.
Charles is a professional dancer and has discovered Ashtanga Yoga since about 10 years. Assuch, in using this body-revitalising practice, he has found a key of well-being and a road to alignment.
