Commoning is not a new buzzword. It comes with an interesting history and well established meaning. During this “fireside chat”, we will bring some terminological clarifications for the term “commoning” by linking its roots in the concept of “commons” and by summarizing what it has come to mean in/for design. We will also bring examples of commoning, suggest how designers can learn from commoners, and ideate on pluriversal commoning.
