UR_BER Berlin as common good – How can we use our city together?

#UR_BER Berlin, 2016 - DEMO:POLIS, ADK
Session finished

What if the whole city would be “common”? How would the public space be designed and used when the common good is a priority – and by whom? Are welfare and commercial exploitation compatible interests? What are the opportunities and where the obstacles in organizing communal use? What public resources should be provided? How could citizens design and manage common city spaces hand in hand, and what forms of organization do we need for that?
