Alejandro Manga

does your study includes/ has something to say about cooperative housing using commons?
Bailey Hu
01:13:05
I know the name of the project is “co-cities,” but do you think any of these approaches is also well-suited for (or could easily be adapted to) rural areas?
Ebony Gustave
01:13:24
Do you have any suggestions for occupying vacant city owned property in NYC?
Paola Hernández
01:14:00
what are your thoughts about the “15-minute city” approach?also, glad to see the inclusion of community food spaces/urban farms/school gardens. how do you see the integration of food as a common as part of your concept and your project? thanks a lot Sheila in advance for your responses and your presentation!
Rosanna, in Edinburgh (she/her)

'co-communities' in rural areas? @Bailey Hu
Tamara Greenfield
01:15:29
Has anything like this ever been done with public housing as way to engage residents in co-ownership and stewardship of the common areas?
Josh McLinden
01:17:26
Can you speak to the challenges of and approaches to engaging residents - particularly low-income residents who have limited free time as it is - in the process of collective governance?
Ohoud Kamal
01:19:12
Would such a 'method' also apply to different political Economies in contrast to the contexts you have described? Since I am from Palestine living in Jordan, I am intrigued how we could make such professional experiences and their practical implications transferrable to other contexts such as the ones mentioned located in the global South

thank you!
Rebecca Bratspies

Sheila-I am working with a community group organizing around waste transfer stations in South Queens. I think that a City as Commons framing can propel and amplify the EJ narrative. Have you thought about the intersection between The Human Right to Breathe Clean Air and the City as Commons?

Can you describe the differentiation between the needs of youth and adult participants in Co-City projects?
