Dear colleagues, 

A gentle reminder to consider contributing to our online multi-disciplinary workshop on sharing and cooperativism. We invite scholars and practitioners with a background in design, computing, economics, sociology, anthropology, and beyond to submit a lightweight position paper/case study/design portfolio (1-4 pages) in relation to one of the workshop's themes (the CfP is below) within September 1, 2020. The workshop will be held online.

The online 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 cooperativism.

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;  
(iii) Design beyond markets for sharing and cooperativism.
