Commons ecologies is a term which refers to a promising approach for helping local initiatives to interpret and to realise UN Sustainable Development Goals in ways that are sensitive to local needs (de Angelis, 2017). The workshop is concerned to learn about the applicability of the commons ecologies concept in different contexts and to compare experiences and practices in a range of cases. Delegates will share insights regarding different types of ‘capital’ (Bourdieu, 1986; Roland and Landua, 2013) and ‘institutional biography’ (Lawrence et al., 2011) required to build community-led initiatives through commons ecologies.
