Session motivation

The motivation of the initiators is to unify stand-alone initiatives and to maximize the visibility of the alternative movement by creating a large and open knowledge resource. It is crucial for the participants to ensure that this remains a non-profit effort that is owned and managed as a Commons. We believe open maps have an extraordinary potential for visualizing and sharing knowledge and that it can be used as a lever for a bottom-up transition towards sustainability, beyond growth. We are very excited to exchange around the idea with the Fest's crowd.
