Move Commons

Move Commons (MC) is a simple tool for initiatives, collectives, NGOs, non-profits and social movements to declare the core principles they are committed to. MC follows the same mechanics as Creative Commons tags cultural works, providing a standard, user-friendly, bottom-up, self-labelling system for each initiative, with 4 meaningful icons, and some keywords. This presentation will present the current labelling system, explain how to adopt it and what benefits it could bring. [+info]
