Who Owns the World? The State of Platform Cooperativism


The New School

LOCATION: The New School, 72 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10011

DATES: November 7, Thursday through November 9, Saturday

The New School's Institute for the Cooperative Digital Economy is pleased to announce their upcoming three-day conference on building a more inclusive economy.

Celebrating ten years of digital labor conferences at The New School, Who Owns the World? The State of Platform Cooperativism is the most international gathering of its kind. Following our 2018 conference in Hong Kong, this much-needed event summons scholars and founders of platform cooperatives — businesses that use a website, mobile app, or protocol to sell goods or services while relying on democratic decision-making and shared ownership of the platform by workers and users. 

Who Owns the World? convenes one hundred fifty speakers from over thirty countries to meet each other, co-design, and learn about topics such as worker power in the platform economy, antitrust, misogyny and racism in co-ops, ecological sustainability, best practices for cooperation including the allocation of startup funding, the potential of platform co-ops for data trusts, data co-ops, new models for distributed governance, and data sovereignty.
