The New School
November 7-9, 2019 @ The New School in New York City
Around the globe, we are starting to build an alternative economy that benefits the many, not just the few. Our passions, research, and projects challenge platform capitalism and chart a more democratic future. We show that an inclusive economy is not only necessary but possible.
When starting a platform co-op, we rely on the support of our communities, established co-ops, incubators, co-op banks, unions, foundations, researchers, lawyers, technologists, and policymakers. “Who Owns the World?” is about building connections between these groups, finding the much-needed support, and learning from each other. For the first time, this event will bring together many of the most active players in this movement worldwide to share updates and insights, instigate initiatives, make new friends, lift each other up, plan next steps, and find new business partners as well as funders.
Celebrating 10 years of digital labor conferences at The New School, “Who Owns the World?” will feel the pulse of platform cooperativism, worldwide.
Public activities will begin on the evening of Thursday, November 7. We will conclude on Saturday, November 9 in the early evening. The coopathon will be hosted on Wednesday, November 6 and Thursday, November 7 preceding the conference, also at The New School. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating in this coopathon. More details will follow.
