From austerity and debt to public space and health as commons
Identifying strategies, practices and challenges
From one crisis to another. From the economic crisis of 2008 to the crisis of Covid-19. We have experienced the impact of cuts to public services and we have seen communities and activists respond with mutual aid and self organising spaces of collective care, where communities conceive health and care in an expanded way: not only by providing access to medical services and equipment, but also by providing solidarity in the form of psychological support, defence against domestic violence, support in struggles for housing and income and sustaining environments for cultural production.
This event is intended as a space for the presentation of initiatives and for shared reflection on the ways activists have self organised in response to these crises.In preparation for the event we have gathered stories from activists and movements from throughout Europe and beyond. We invite you to read them in advance of the event. – https://commonhorizons.cc/en/category/urban-commons/
