Event Title

The purpose of this interactive synthesis report is to present motivations, conceptual basis, design principles, product prototypes and action scripts for a new type of social innovation enterprise. Modeled as a (knowledge) commons-based community advancement institute, its mission to actualize, revitalize, nourish, consolidate and leverage the community’s collective intelligence and civic participation agency in pursuit of emancipatory, welfare-enhancing and sustainability-attainment desiderata is operationalized and implemented via negotiating, building and stewarding a portfolio of shared assets and actionable ad hoc knowledge production activities under the critical regional science inquiry label.
