New project | Charging the Commons: designing DLTs to empower resource communities

Starting January the 1st, CivicIxD will work together with Avans and the lectoraat Situated Art and Design on a new project: Charging the Commons.

This project is a follow up of Circulate and with it, we will have the opportunity to further investigate how can the underlying (social) values of communities be translated into a design for the organisation of an urban commons using digital ledger technologies (DLT’s). This will be a 2-year research project in collaboration with SME’s, field labs and two transfer sites in Amsterdam and Birmingham, and we will also be joined by a community of practice that includes several knowledge centres, Industry associations and Network & Dissemination, partners. Together, we will develop a set of design principles and guidelines for the design of DLTs for the urban commons.
