Commonfare.net is a platform designed to inform, inspire, and connect people across Europe in imagining and creating a more just society based on citizen solidarity, the common good and social justice. This platform is a work in progress and will become what we, the Commoners, make of it.
In this spirit, we are pleased to announce our next Call for Common Stories! Share your ideas of what the internet means for „good“ society, and if your story is selected, Commonfare will send you to the „Internet =CommonSpace” Conference organized by digiQ in Bratislava, Slovakia on March 28th. The conference will be mostly in Slovak language. Commonfare will cover your participation at the conference on March 28th and a weekend in Bratislava until March 30th. Commonfare will cover the expenses of travel, accommodation and provide a daily allowance for you to enjoy the Conference and your weekend in Bratislava to the fullest.
