We are happy to announce a call for participation (CfP) for the NordiCHI
2020 workshop on sharing, cooperatives, economics, and design. The workshop
will take place as part of the NordiCHI 2020 conference in Tallin, Estonia,
October 25-29 (or virtual)

We invite scholars, designers, and activists with a background in
computing, design, economics, sociology, anthropology and beyond to
participate in our workshop. The CfP is below, the submissions are
lightweight and the remote attendance is possible.

The NordiCHI 2020 workshop “Sharing & Cooperativism: Designing for
Economies” aims to bring together practitioners and scholars working at
the intersection of sharing, cooperativism, and design.

By turning to sharing and cooperativism, we imagine building systems in
relation to the wider social and political structures surrounding
these concepts. Yet, in sharing and cooperativism, less emphasis is given
to the possibilities that design can bring to the emerging interactions at
the intersections of social, cultural, and economic issues. A progressive
approach is needed to uncover the relationship of sharing and cooperativism
to new design paradigms that allows us to move towards an alternative
understanding of economies through design. Our aim is to ground
this discussion through a design workshop that is well-aligned with the
historical, political, and economic infrastructures in order to shape
the relationship of design and economics in the context of sharing and

We call for participants from diverse backgrounds to contribute to a
critical discussion at the intersection of design, sharing, cooperativism,
and economics on the workshop's thematic areas: (i) Local relational assets
in sharing; (ii) Global sharing cultures, and (iii) Design beyond markets
for sharing and cooperativism. More details:

To apply, please submit a 1-4 page(s) position paper explaining your
interests in design and cooperativism in the ACM Submission Template
format by September 1, 2020 through our website . To promote broader
participation from design practitioners, and community activists, we offer

portfolio, a short manifesto, or the like.
