Overview of session

At Greenpeace, we’re redesigning our global web presence to engage with  people and to help them act on behalf of our planet. The project, code  named Planet 4,  is the first openly run project of it’s size at Greenpeace  International. In the workshop “Negotiating for Open”, we’ll use Planet 4  as a case study and explore open decision and design frameworks to help  you and your organization establish relationships that can achieve  global impacts.
User-driven and community-based design projects are impactful and fulfilling. In the redesign of a remix of the Open Decision Framework, the Open Design Kit  and community collaboration is of highest importance. In this interactive session, I’d like to share my experiences in a hands on way.  Participants can bring their ideas, their businesses, their strategic directions, and together we’ll help each other set up structures and  processes that invite people in. We’ll give advice, talk through issues  and create a working atmosphere that helps people solve real world  problems.

Throughout this session, think about a recommended action CC might take to secure the future of the commons!
Architectures of Participation
We'll start this session with a quick overview of the Planet 4 project, how we're working and what has helped us along the way. The big insight is that someone already did what you need doing. Learn to remix for your context.
Problem Definitions
Using one of my favorite activities , we'll see what kinds of ideas, problems and projects participants have brought to the room. I want this session to be useful in solving your real world problems.
Collaborative Problem Solving
We'll spend some time discussing the different problem areas and giving each other ideas for resources or strategies that will make participation easier.
Contribution Asks
Just a quick note on our role in Environmental Activism. We should be teaching the Commons as an ethos, a philosophy. How can we make sure to support each other in the future? 

Next steps

Collectively defined, but one of them could be to contribute to the Planet 4 project ;)
How might these practices be adopted by Creative Commons as a movement?
