De Remix Biens Communs


  • Actors and stakeholders

  1. Friends Groups

Groups of participative citizens living near a commons (such as a park) (outside of government or private oversight) to respond against regulatory slippage and invests in commons upkeep, mobilize a plan and raise support for restoration, maintenance, and preservation (Foster 2012)

  1. Park Conservancies

A nonprofit organization raising large sums of money to co-manage large urban parks in partnership with local governments

  1. Non-Governmental/Non-Profit Organizations

an organization which does not distribute its surplus income to owners or shareholders (Wikipedia)

  1. Municipalities and Governing Bodies

  1. Small Local Businesses and Enterprises

  1. Citizens (Seperated by Age and Purpose: Young People, Families, Elderlies) (Could also be split from Primary users to Secondary users Groups)

  1. Platform Co-operatives

  1. Academic Researchers

  • I will put the definition of each actor here, but should I explain what their involvement/responsibilities could look like in the tactical chartering process here?

  • why not to use directly the wiki ? we can look for the definitions

  • Absolutely, I will literally copy and paste from remix the commons and provide a link to each concepte. Will do...

  • yes and include the links. I think, we could underlign (?) the concepts that must be linked in the wiki. It could help to clarify them, because when it's too complicate, the process (by the wiki) doen't work well.

  • Understood... the same should be done for the "objectives"

  1. A clear definition - Of or relating to small-scale actions serving a larger purpose, Or a process of planning and or maneuvering between unrelated groups to accomplish a common purpose

  1. A deliberate phased approach to instigating change - Whatever the objective might be, tactical chartering is an organized way of making a plan, setting rules and norms, and providing responsibilities that make the writing of the charter more conducive to the people and physical space of the neighborhood

  1. An offering of local ideas for planning local challenges - Inhabitants know best what the neighborhood needs to retain its character or provide unobtainable needs to residents of a neighbhorhood, so inhabitants will share ideas, norms, and decisions to tackle whatever challenge an urban commons might face

  1. Short term commitment and realistic expectations - Projects should remain relatively local and conducive to the conditions of the neighborhood instead big-scale planned projects that run the risk of changing the character of the neighborhood. If projects are at a smaller scale, it is more likely that its residents will actively participate to reach the objective. That said, tactical chartering can lead to a low risk change to the neighborhood with a potentially high reward. Experimental projects can be done inexpensively, with flexibility, and with the possibility for adjustments to be made.

  1. Development of Social Capital between different involved groups - Social capital can be shared and distributed between residents, community leaders, private institutions, NGOs, and other constituents, which helps foster clearer communication in the planning of a charter. This will also help develop trust between the different groups involved in the same project, which makes it easier for people to work with one another

  1. Participatory Planning - Urban projects are more successful when the public is involved with the testing of ideas and design features, this will also help raise public awareness to the project.

  1. Online Sharing Tactics - Participants can use sophisticated web-based tools to allow the sharing of ideas to certain urban issues. Such ideas can be distributed across several cities that are faced with similar problems within minutes.
