World Commons Week 2020

Spread the news! IASC’s World Commons Week 2020 is currently scheduled for Sept 30th – Oct 9th. 

We will update this website regularly as the event develops.   

Local Events

The IASC is an organization of commons scholars and practitioners that aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas, experiences, and solutions. In 2018, the inaugural year of World Commons Week, we had 35 affiliated local events from around the world. In 2019, we had 55 partnering local events globally. This year, we hope to continue expanding as a global commons community, even if these events need to be offered online because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic!

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.
