Here we list the physical workshops taking place in the US that are significant milestones for the movement, as well as those that develop the sense-making capacities of the movement.
The Future of Occupy (FoO) Workshop at the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) Making Worlds, Commons Forum Feb 16-18.
Delivered by Mary Beth Steisslinger at OWS
This workshop was made up of two parts asking firstly, What are the challenges to successful horizontal politics? Then secondly, Why and how to form knowledge commons for horizontal strategy? Both sections were informed by and inter-linked with the Occupy-Commons strategy workshop, that was taking place before the event, concurrently, and following on from the event online at the FoO website.
