From remunicipalisation of basic services to co-management of services and public facilities, or inclusive public procurement to support the social and solidarity economy, there is a vast space for public-community innovation through commoning.

Join us for a peer learning process jointly developed by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) with the aim of fostering exchanges and experience-based discussions around how Local and Regional Governments can engage in and benefit from commoning practices and public-community innovation mechanisms to respond to local challenges, with a particular focus on basic service provision.
