« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

L’apprentissage est un débat récurrent au sein de la société, comme en témoignent le nombre d’écoles alternatives, de rapports d’échecs scolaires[1]et de réformes de l’éducation nationale par chaque nouveau ministre[2]. C’est aussi un thème qui émerge des pratiques et des espaces de coworking[3]. En effet, le coworking est une question de communauté (co) et de travail (working) et cela inclut de l’apprentissage social. Et quand une communauté de travail décide d’apprendre ensemble sur le thème « Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 ! », on en tire un événement génial !!

Overview of RGCS activites (2014-2018): studying and experimenting collaborative practices

Overview of RGCS activites (2014-2018): studying and experimenting collaborative practices

Our network has first been a working group (NETC) set up in October 2014. It has then be a network gathering researchers, entrepreneurs and activists interested in new ways of working (e.g. collaborative work and collaborative spaces) and exploring new ways of working for academics-practitioners collaborations from 2015. What did we do since the beginning of this adventure? It is time to take stock of our activities.

These years have been opportunities for numerous experimentations, attempts, failures, surprises, a lot of bricolages and improvisations. We did our best to make things happen. Most of all, we are proud of what we did or tried to do.

Our key accomplishments and contributions could be summarized the following way:

What could be the next steps? What do we want for the next years? Difficult to say. As we like to repeat, let's surprise ourselves...

RGCS opens a chapter in Washington!

RGCS opens a chapter in Washington!

By Serge da Motta Veiga

The Greater Washington (or Capital) region has a population in excess of 6 million people with a diversifying business presence and a gradually shrinking federal government presence. Five counties across the region are among the top ten counties in the country for median household income. The region is also well represented among the most educated residents across the country. There has been good and steady growth across Greater Washington in the last decade, with the District of Columbia increasing from approximately 550,000 people in the early 2000s to over 700,000 residents today.

Surprisingly, although it is the capital of the county, there are many “sectors” other than the federal government that make up the business life of this region. The leading hotel companies in the world are based in Greater Washington – Hilton, Marriott, Choice, Ritz, Host and other ones are headquartered in and around

« Collaborative finance for collaborative spaces », #RGCSBarcelona seminar on fablabs & crowdfunding

By Heloise Berkowitz (Ecole Polytechnique, i3-CRG)

We thank IBEI for graciously hosting the event and for Carlos, Helena and Gloria for their precious help in organizing the seminar. And we thank our three presentators : Ignasi Capdevila (PSB), Tomas Diez (Fab City Research Lab Director, Smart Citizen Co-founder) and Sergi Figueres Moret (former IBEI student, co-founder and CEO of “Worldcoo”).

***********

On the 25th of May, Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals hosted a #RGCSBarcelona seminar on “Collaborative finance for collaborative spaces”. The objective was to open a dialogue between two dimensions of the collaborative economy: fab labs and crowdfunding. Indeed, the collaborative economy not only deeply transforms and challenges working practices, but also calls for rethinking funding models and financial systems.
