OPEN 2020

OS Oli SB Public Seen by 170

Save the dates! OPEN 2020 will be in London on the 11th and 12th of June 2020 - focusing on 'co-creating the collaborative, regenerative economy' - see you there ;) - super early bird tickets coming soon...


Oli SB Mon 23 Sep 2019 3:45PM

If you have information about, research on, or are working on a project which involves 'co-creating the collaborative, regenerative economy' which you would like to present at OPEN 2020 please submit a proposal here: https://www.loomio.org/d/7GgNcVvM/open-2020-propose-a-session


Ed Mon 23 Sep 2019 4:27PM

Thanks Oli! Can I preregister to help out again please :)

Happy to help with organising if that's useful ... what comes to mind is the host of eocnomy-related articles on the P2P Foundation wiki, where I have recently redone some of the category intro pages. Look at https://wiki.p2pfoundation.net/Category:Economics and its subcategories for a start. I would love to see the P2PF wiki being used more widely as a commons knowledge base. Maybe this could be one theme for OPEN 2020 -- collaboration on the documentation and knowledge base supporting the collaborative regenerative economy?

Another thread I would love to see, my own idea this time, would be building another more specific and structured semantic wiki to do with what in traditional terms are supply chains and competence frameworks. Would love to talk about this and see what it could offer you and our network.

And of course as ever it's not just the technology. If we did get a larger group together using the P2PF Wiki, part of what would make it work would be really good collaboration between the contributors. Circle practice. Co-creation. That kind of thing, you know?

Hi Oli, happy new year! keen to help out again :)



Oli SB Tue 3 Mar 2020 2:23PM

Just a quick reminder - this is the last week that early bird tickets for OPEN 2020 are available - grab yours now to secure the 40% discount. If you would like to volunteer please send a quick message via https://open.coop/contact/ and we will add you to the list. @Ed - you're already on the list :) first come, first served... Thanks all, Oli

Are tickets necessary if your proposal has also been accepted or you're presenting?


Oli SB Thu 12 Mar 2020 10:20AM

The plan was... as in previous years, that everyone needs a ticket. It costs a significant amount of money to host an even like OPEN. But we have now taken the tough decision to postpone the event and hold something online instead.


Titan Cassini Thu 12 Mar 2020 11:44PM

I understand the costs. Thanks for clarifying. Sorry you had to cancel the face-to-face meeting, but it is understandable. Glad there will be something else online instead though. Checking the link details now.


Oli SB Mon 8 Jun 2020 4:29PM

Hi All - just a short update to remind you all (if you haven't got your ticket yet) that OPEN 2020 is happening this week on Thursday and Friday. The main event info is here and the full lineup of events is here - or you can look at the program of main sessions in a google sheet here.
We will be hosting OPEN 2020 via an open source video conference tool called Big Blue Button - hosted via meet.coop ... and will be sending out joining info to all ticket holders on Tuesday, to allow you time to test the tools.
The unwaged ticket is just £3.50 so we're hoping that makes the event affordable for everyone and are very much looking forward to see you all there! Get your ticket here.


Guy James Thu 11 Jun 2020 10:42AM

I was hoping to attend the first Mutual Credit session but wasn't able to register and pay until just before the session. I didn't receive any notification about how to access the event so I suppose I have missed it. If I go to the event page there is no indication that I have already paid, it just says 'book ticket', which I already did.

Is the info about where to join the conference sent out manually, so I have to wait for that process to take place? And will the sessions be recorded? Thanks.


Graham Thu 11 Jun 2020 10:44AM

Hi Guy

the session is live now. You should get the password in your email soon from thomas@open.coop. It is being recorded


Guy James Thu 11 Jun 2020 10:46AM

ok thanks @Graham !

Hi All,

We have now edited and uploaded all the videos from the main tow days of OPEN 2020 – here they are in chronological order.

You can also video them in the OPEN 2020 playlist on our YouTube channel – which includes all the pre-event webinars too.

I have been developing some reflections on OPEN 2020 which I aim to publish as a blog post at some point - please add comments if you have any reflections...

@Grace (Rebecca Rachmany) (who chaired the mutual credit deep dive session) is now running an Experiment which you are all welcome to get involved with...

The Experiment is a Commons that we will co-govern. The emphasis is on developing our interpersonal skills along with our organizational and execution skills, so we remain a cohesive group as we produce results.

It's a very open and collaborative concept which may possibly develop into a co-created event... although the general objective is to "organize an Armada from our flotilla of networks and communities"... which sounds like a very worthwhile endeavour to me!
