Contemplative Commons

Gábor Kovács participated in the workshop “Towards a Contemplative Commons” on August 14-15, 2017 at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam, Germany.

Scholars and practitioners from different fields of contemplative studies attended the workshop with the goal of investigating and discussing the contemplative dimensions of sustainability. The main objective of the workshop was to develop a shared understanding of the Anthropocene, to co-develop ethical and contemplative approaches to post-capitalism and commoning, and to establish a collective process for conceptualizing and constructing the “Contemplative Commons”.
