CCS Events - Spring Semester 2019

Date Event Time Location
Saturday, November 16th Life Skills for Wise Commoning - Fine-tuning ourselves with the collaborative commons in the 'Great Transition' - A One-day Full-Immersion Workshop - Saturday, November 16th - 10:00am - 3:00pm (lunch provided) - Center for Contemplative Studies, 700 S. Church Street - The collaborative commons perspective is enlightened by a careful attention to the household economy, a topic that is usually marginalized in the discussion about the commons. The workshop deals with topics such as the change of the meaning of work and uses of personal data - both connected with the oportunities offered by distributed ledger technologies. The workshop's goal is to accompany participants to a greater awareness of the present moment (being-in-the-world), integrated with social and economic awareness of their life context. A joyful life is possible, and it starts from the dynamic awareness of the provisioning processes in which we are engaged in everyday life. Vincenzo Mario Bruno Giorgino, PhD has more than twenty years of experience in the field of clinical and applied sociology. Dr. Giogino is an Aggregate Professor at the Department of Economic and Social Sciences at the University of Torino.
