Generation T meets Michel Bauwens

On the 18th of February, Generation T member Kristof Calvo and Gilles Vanden Burre invited Geneneration T members for an inspirational evening with Michel Bauwens and politicians from all parties in the Federal Parliament.

Michel Bauwens is the founder of the Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives and works in collaboration with a global group of researchers in the exploration of peer production, governance, and property. He published a best-selling interview transcript, with Jean Lievens, 'De Wereld Redden, met peer to peer naar een post-kapitalistische samenleving'. 

The evening started with a network moment between Michel Bauwens, Generation T and young journalists and politicians from all parties. Once seated in the conference room of the federal parliament Michel Bauwens started his inspirational speech. The subject was creative commons, and started with a history lesson starting from medieval times, fluently moving towards present times, with amongst others, stories about Facebook, Bitcoin and bikesharing.
