Self-management in Europe

Change work, enterprise and production, promote common goods

Via Castruccio Castracane 30


Workshop organized by transform! europe and transform! Italia in collaboration with GUE/NGL, Cercare Ancora, Altramente and the University of Camerino.


On fights, experiences of work and production, social networks, as well as institutional aspects and considerations.

transform! europe is following the definition of the Commons and social movements related to it. A first meeting was held in Paris on the subject of Common Good also as a space of social reappropriation.

In this context the workshop opens a space of reflection on the theme of self-management of workers in factories and workplaces, which will develop its own process of analysis and initiative.
