Concurrent Town Halls in Various Locations
Parallel sessions open up spaces where you can learn about the projects of your fellow participants from around the world. They amplify the unique potential of all of us being together at The New School. Think of the format of this session as a topically-focused town hall; it is not a traditional panel. Each speaker has 5 minutes to introduce their work. The second hour of the session is dedicated to discussion that promptly engages the people who are not on the stage. Find the presentations in the File Swap folder linked below.

About This Town Hall
Hear about emerging or expanding platform co-op enterprises working in a range of sectors. From Italy, UK, Spain, U.S., Argentina, and Brazil, these projects demonstrate the diversity and impact of platform co-ops in industries such as home care, short-term rental, food delivery, transportation, and music. Which role can unions play in the platform economy? How can co-ops solve the most seemingly unsolvable problems for freelancers? Talk to founders directly about how they have managed to incorporate, author bylaws, become investor ready, and create a financial model. What lessons for organizational leadership did they learn? Come and learn how to lead better.

The hashtag for this track is #WeOwnIt!
