As convener of this event, Trebor will first welcome you to Platform Cooperativism: Building the Cooperative Internet. Drawing on his book, Uberworked and Underpaid he will propose key aspects for platform cooperativism, a concept that he framed in an article in 2014 and then developed further in an introduction to the cooperative platform economy a year later. This publication, originally published by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, was translated into five languages. Scholz will conclude with a few remarks about the Platform Cooperativism Consortium that will be launched at The New School in the context of this event.
Trebor Scholz Researcher, author, and Founding Director of the PCC
