While facing global crisis, war in Europe and climate change, we want to take a moment to reflect: What do we have in common? What are the things that we want to achieve together to build, and design for all of us? In this colloquium, we will invite guest speakers from all over the world to talk about their view on Allmende, digital commons, Gemeinwohl and beyond, from their perspective as designers, artists, activists, politicians or scientists. Based on this, we engage with you in debates about the role of design in creating the new commons, discuss our opportunities and responsibilities that might spark some ideas for taking action. For our colloquium we invite perspectives of various actors from different parts of the globe in order to better understand the full scope of sustainable transformations of our societies, while considering quite different approaches, affordances as well as social and cultural implications. Together we want to reflect on our role as students, teachers, scholars and as the university as a potential space.
