|Is sustainability a feature of the Collaborative Economy or not?||Round table, where we discuss about the Collaborative Economy and its potential to produce and enforce sustainable activity. How this economy compares with Capitalism and Socialism? Will it be really better or we're just kidding ourselves? |
People will share their thoughts and their experiences. Theories and examples will be presented. A harvester will take notes and after this discussion the group will co-produce a publication.

|ReImagining Jobs through Community Currency and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)||We believe communities should have the agency to tackle global problems like climate change locally, build wealth, and share in abundance. |
involveMINT's Community Exchange Network encourages the stewardship of surrounding resources to increase the community’s agency to tackle global challenges locally. The Community Exchange Network empowers "ChangeMakers" to work on impactful projects by earning a currency accepted and exchanged among community business, residents, and organizations - affording access to goods and services while keeping wealth local. Projects start with impassioned community members called ChangeMakers, who earn community currency and acquire valuable skills in exchange for their service and Proof of Impact - a mechanism allowing the documentation of impact through UN Sustainable Development Goals
This event can have two components: 1) Hackathon for developers and cryptocurrency experts interested in exploring decentralized (blockchain) technologies most suited to meet the goals of the Community Exchange Network 2) Business development/organizers interested in identifying proposals, initiatives, collaborations, and funders - particularly partners/collaborators interested in regenerative, circular economy systems - to help catalyze the mission to bring to more communities and change the nature of work so it is in harmony and stewardship of people and the planet

|Climathon Venice||Two days dedicated to teamwork and innovative projects, to find sustainable solutions towards the Circular Economy.|
The Climathon Venice is approaching and will be held the 14 and 15th of November in the ex-Church of Santi Cosma et Damiano, now called Fabbrica H3, in collaboration with SerenDPT Benefit Corporation as partner, and Venice International University (VIU) and the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC), as scientific partners.

|Open Source Climate DAO||Let's create a real open source collaborative network for climate action. A Distributed Autonomous Organization (DAO), based on blockchain, allows people from around the world to gather together and make good decisions. It can be set up to balance the needs of the community with the need for technical expertise and provide a better way of voting for real change. We're looking for blockchain developers, climate activists, and technical experts on carbon offsets and climate action to come together and plan a real DAO which can be put into action.|

|Open Climate Server - Nested Accounting Demo||The Yale Openlab and Verses team will provide a demo of the Open Climate platform, focusing on a proof-of-concept of how distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and spatial web protocols can be leveraged to establish nested jurisdictional accounting of climate actions via digital assets. With the support of the Social Alpha Foundation and Avangrid, the Yale Openlab has been advancing research on climate accounting for over a year. This demo represents a first technological breakthrough. The demo will show how DLT frameworks like Hyperledger Indy and Aries are combined with the hyperspace transfer protocol (HSTP) to establish cryptographic spatial domains for climate accounting purpose, and how schema registries using graph databases can manage heterogeneus tokens and data assets.|

|Advancing capacity for systemic innovation, at scale||Please join us for an online Community Event of the November 2020 Open Climate Collabathon, wherein Daniel Ari Friedman and Stephen Sillett will present and discuss how systems perspectives could help us go broadly and deeply, as we endeavour to scale our respective efforts for climate action and impact. The session is intended to equip participants with new ways of thinking and doing in the eco-socio-technical systems in which they find themselves embedded - and to aid in our discovery of powerful new affordances and possibilities in working, relationships and life.|
We welcome participants from all regions, disciples and life experience and, since the underlying theory may be new and unfamiliar for many, we intend to offer an accessible introduction to the growing community of practice applying and innovating on these ideas for advancing team capacity in complex domains, project work and collaborations. The co-organizers are themselves developing, applying and continuously advancing such novel methodologies for a variety of dynamic online and IRL collaborations and community sense-making and sense-finding processes
The platform is reserved for an optional 30 minute overtime, should participants wish to extend their conversations, following
Stephen Sillett is a practice-based PhD Candidate, Participatory Theatre Artist, Facilitator, and director of non-profit Aiding Dramatic Change in Development. Stephen is applying enactive-ecological psychology approaches to establish a range of multi-scale principles to unify mind-body-environment interventions. These attention-based principles can enhance his large group practices, multi-arts performances, and InFusion Lab explorations with trans-disciplinary teams.
Daniel A. Friedman is a postdoctoral human in Davis, California. His academic research is related to distributed physiology and evolutionary genomics in the eusocial insects. He consults on remote team discovery, formation and performance and predictive asset modeling. He is also involved in Complexity Science through on-location/in-person and fully-online events like Complexity Weekend and previously, with the Stanford Complexity Group.

|Using Open Source to Transform the Power Grid||The transition from centralized fossil-fuel generation to renewable and distributed energy resources is the most significant reimagining of power systems in over 140 years. Approximately, 75% of our planetary carbon emissions can be mitigated through the electrification of energy and transportation. There is no Plan B for grid transformation; the time is now. By adopting an open source strategy that maximizes flexibility, agility, and interoperability, we can learn to innovate at the speed of technology.|
