General objective of the workshop:

This workshop will ? with a view on Rio+20 objective of improvements in the field of institutional framework for sustainable development ? present an integrative conceptual framework for coherent engagement of different sustainable development actors which looks at the different contributions as ?collaborative wealth generation?. As this collaboratively generated wealth is of interest/benefit for all humanity (wo&menkind ), it can be regarded as ?global commons? (?The Commons is a general term for shared resources in which each stakeholder has an equal interest?, source: http://p2pfoundation.net/Commons ).

At the workshop the idea of a ?Multi-Stakeholder Partnership on Global Commons Growth? and a ?Charter on Shared Social Responsibility for Global Commons? will be presented and contributions of different stakeholders to global commons growth discussed.

In the context of Rio+20 conference a ?Multi-Stakeholder Partnership on Global Commons Growth? and a ?Charter on Shared Social Responsibility for Global Commons? are regarded by the workshop organizers as being instrumental for the integration of global public good oriented efforts of public authorities (local, regional, national and international), business sector (e.g. CSR activities), research and education institutions, civil society organizations etc. and contributions of individual global citizens in one common documentation and metrics system. This shall help the promotion of different types of civic engagement (financial contributions, volunteering, activism, capacity building, creative commons/arts, social innovations, ?) in line with the Bonn DPI Ngo conference title ?Sustainable societies ? responsive citizens?.
