Organized by Archipiélago magazine and Medialab-Madrid.
Directed by Joaquín Rodríguez (Co-director of Archipiélago)The serious and reasonable treatment of the commons implies a re-formulation of the human economy of exchange, positioning it closer to the gift economy, and the economy of generosity -to the benefit of the majority, since the circulatity and correspondence of exchanges applies to all of us- than to the economy of private exploitation of the public sector, in detriment to the fundamental principal of life and social co-existence.
