In this session, we explore a world of commons: where resources are managed together, where we are all stewards, all stakeholders. How can we resist the idea that Silicon Valley algorithms know better? How do we rewrite the rules? How can we revalue diversity and the local? How could technology mirror ecology? We hear from experts who are building infrastructure to take back the commons and generate capacity towards a fundamental transformation of the digital age. We also explore what a diverse education system might mean, and how important it is to unlearn many of the realities we have come to believe as our only option.
