World Commons Week 2020

It’s a Wrap!

IASC’s World Commons Week 2020
 Sept 30th through Oct 9th is completed!

This year we held eight keynotes webinars, and despite the global pandemic, we beat our record and had 57 locations around the world participating in self-organized “local” — online — events! 

See below for more information and thank you to everyone who made WCW2020 a success!  

Local Events

IASC World Commons Week local events are ones where commons scholars and practitioners undertake self-organized local events to encourage discussion and inquiry on a wide variety of commons themes. 

However, in 2020 — in the midst of a global pandemic — it is a different type of year, that limits what can be done locally and in-person. Even so, a number of self-organized events are using online meeting platforms to encourage commons research and practice-related dialog and 57 locations around the world are participating.

Global Keynote Webinars

This year, eight IASC regional Keynote Webinars will be delivered — one each for IASC region — Africa, Asia, China, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania. We are introducing a new panel webinar this year, showcasing researchers affiliated with our Early Career Network members.
