28 june 2017: Commons solstice

"Tech is neither destiny nor autonomous. Tech interacts with social institutions, institutional choices and laws"

With this phrase of Yochai Benkler, delivered during the opening speech of the Commons Collaborative Economies Forum, we welcome the summer; the best season of the year to cool down with Goteo! You can find us online, but in this newsletter we are going to present you some activities to keep us on track :)

Goteo at the Commons Collaborative Economies Forum

As we said, on 27th and 28th of June we are at the Commons Collaborative Economies Forum, which celebrates its 2nd edition in Barcelona (Barcelona Activa, c/Llacuna, 162-164). It is free and coordinated by the research group Dimmons (Institut Interdisciplinar d’Internet IN3) of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. The forum will focus around the collaborative economy of digital paltforms and about the importance of the citizens participation to promote commons models and democratize the economy. We encourage you to check the program here.

Are you interested in crowdfunding? Do you have initiatives to launch?

This Thursday 29th, from 16h to 20h, we organize a free workshop around Crowdfunding in the Artik Center Fab-Lab Palma of Palma de Mallorca. Come to learn how to fund your project collectively, discover the peculiar characteristics of the crowdfunding and know more about the vision and strategies of presential/offline dissemination...and much more! Sign up here


This week we will announce the projects selected in the matchfunding call META!Kultura 2017. These projects will receive, during the summer, free advice from Goteo and a group workshop during July. The Diputación of Guipuzkoa contributed with 70.000€ in this call, so it's a serious game!

New channel Slowfood Chile

We are happy to inform you that we have just created the Slowfood Chile Channel, an association aiming to showcase and protect food biodiversity, ecosystems and communities of producers growing it. Inside this new channel you can find projects related with a healthy, sustainable and traditional diet. 5 projects have been already published, so check them here.

And since this month we are celebrating a new summer and debating around new paradigmes, we give you a list of amazing projects to support. Let's draw, let's bloom and let's remix together!
