2012: From protest to process
2011 has seen the Arab Spring and the global Occupy Movement. Maybe it is time to progress from protest to process and from process to production, new answers for the challenges ahead. I want to invite you to an opportunity to find companion and exchange in the diversity of the “social wave”. In the last years coworking places around the world have emerged as new spaces to probe new forms to work and collaborate.
Coworking – and beyond coworking
Coworking is a style of work which involves a shared working environment, sometimes an office, yet independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Wikipedia – Today we find a growing number of cowo places around the world (May 2011: 820). For more: Global Coworking Survey (deskmag).
Coworking means not just to have a new kind of work place, but it is part of a different work culture, it is connected with the “spirit of co“, communication, connectedness, collaboration.
