On Digital Citizenship and Data as a New Commons: Can We Design a New Movement?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Along with the urgent need to reinvent our society, a series of paradigm shifts
are already shaping transitions toward a more participatory and digital society. The current work takes stock of the promise of open data as a new resource and elaborates upon the maker movement, which has spurred people’s capacity to participate and has provided tools and infrastructures to unleash people’s intrinsic ability to create and innovate. We explore how open data can be a new commons, discuss how hackathons can support digital citizenship, and reflect on the role of Transition Design in creating ecosystems around the common resource and in building capacity.
