How can society operate in more relational ways, reflecting our deep entanglements as humans with each other and the more-than-human world around us, and allow us to act in relationships of mutual care?

Verslag workshop Charging the Commons: Het ontwerp van digitale platformen voor de commons

Hoe ontwerp je een digitaal platform voor een commons als een autodeel-gemeenschap, die niet alleen functioneel is en het makkelijk maakt om een auto te reserveren, maar die tegelijkertijd ook de commons als gemeenschap versterkt? Die vraag stond centraal in de workshop die we op 4 april met partners uit het Charging the Commons-project hielden bij de HvA.

Student Prototypes of resource-sharing platforms for the commons

In the fall semester of 2023, students of the minor Het internet is stuk, maar we gaan het repareren, were asked to explore and design resource-sharing platform for the commons. The goal is to make a wide choice of electric cars and other forms of electric shared driving available in the neighborhood. When car owners switch to shared driving, parking spaces will be eliminated, and more space will be created in the neighborhood.โ€

Workshop | Quadratic Voting

Through our situated research, we noticed there is desire amongst resource sharing communities for collective decision-making procedures that speak to both local community values, and the broader principles of the commons. To explore this further designer-researcher Tara Karpinski conducted a workshop with members of the Community Land Trust H-buurt.

Design Canvas Digital Platforms for Resource Communities

The canvas employs a Value Sensitive Design (VSD) framework that can help explore the values at stake, the affordances of technologies, and the motivations and interests of stakeholders. This canvas is one of the tools we designed to help designers and companies discover the values within a particular community, understand which values should be made explicit and how they can be aligned with the affordances of the technologies.

Ener-geyser

The Ener-geyser (or Schoonschip Geyser) is a data-driven (floating) fountain that visualises peak times: times when there is a high demand for energy on the communal energy smart-grid of an Amsterdam-based resource community called Schoonschip. By visualising energy levels in real-time, the Geyser helps the community make decisions about when to turn on appliances, in order to achieve their agreed sustainability goals.
