The meeting is co-organised by the Working Group on Common Goods and the participants of the European Commons Assembly. The aims are to give visibility to the commons movement and to launch a platform for commoners to share experiences, practices, and policy proposals, and to exchange with MEPs engaged in bringing the commons perspective at the institutional level. The platform will make concrete proposals and promote direct participation in the EU institutions. The assembly intends to be a collaborative and participatory process.
