'Commons for Children' children's conference at Casco, during Practicing the commons: IASC 2017 Biennial Conference, 10-14 July 2017. Photography: Merel Zwarts, Aimée Zito Lema, Anne Punt. The three-day series of workshops departed from the theme of the conference, "Practicing the Commons: Self-Governance, Cooperation and Institutional Change," and was created with and led by artists Merel Zwarts and Aimée Zito Lema. During our own children’s conference Commons for Children we addressed the topic of commoning from the perspective of a younger generation. Children were invited to cook, work, create and play together. Not only encouraged to reflect on the world, the participants were given the tools and means to cooperate, transform and organize it.
