I don’t know if I can get to this but I’d like to. It connects with my “connected world” interests regarding how we are able to learn, and  regarding online communities.

 Universe.city – a little-giant school, prelaunch @OccupyWSFThere will be 15 min. presentation and status update, and 45 min. co-learning circle titled: ‘Creating open / collaborative / deliberative / transformative spaces and situations’

*Universe.City is a free and open access platform initiative, empowered by GNUnion and others. It allows cooperative learning for individuals and groups by connecting spaces, people and projects within and without the city(ies). The unconditional empowerment of the disempowered, the excluded, and the oppressed, solidarity and cooperation between and within such is our motto. Adopting Fereire’s pedagogical approach, as well as other transformatory, emancipatory perspectives Universe.city strive for liberating knowledge at the point of production and distribution from alienation, borders, time, and social class domination. Universe.city brings together Free / Libre, Open Source Software (FLOSS) resources for self-learning, such as free access libraries, torrent depositories, ‘How To’, DIY, and ‘DIWO’ guides. We try to combine these with ‘professionally’ designed and delivered online, face to face, one to one, one to many, and many to many courses, or any other type of educative activities; either gratis or provided in a framework of emancipatory cooperative exchange. These can be practical and analytical lectures, study circles, trainings, workshops, strategy sessions, or otherwise. In a way, all activities serve participants, and allow them to contribute to the emergence of a cooperative and solidarity economy at the planetary level, and.. beyond 😉
