In a frame of the Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities (CCSC) project, European Cultural Foundation and the University of Antwerp, in cooperation with l’Asilo, Boekman Foundation and Trans Europe Halles organised a digital co-creation lab Commons Sense: Let’s Create a Bottom-Up European Democracy which took place on the 22nd and the 29-30th of June 2020.
On 22 June we hosted the introductory webinar to the event. During the webinar, we presented the CCSC project and discussed a few of the main themes and challenges that the project is dealing with.
On 29-30 June we hosted the actual Co-Creation Lab. 12 teams spent two days working on three challenges together. You can find their proposals below.
