what you won't find here

This website offers a minimalistic yet cohesive view on the knowledge commons and the target groups involved in their maintenance and growth. It avoids unnecessary repeating of content and justifications that can be found elsewhere on the web. It provides access points to authentic work and assets (essential facilities in the knowledge economy), but it is not itself an essential facility.

a stepstone in an engagement path

The site supports the engagement strategy for the Convention on Knowledge Commons: that the identified stakeholder categories (target groups) take ownership of the systematization of the knowledge commons , the test cases and the subsequent value construction and risk mitigation on their basis, as well as their use in communicating with their constituencies.

target groups

The users of the Smallholder Common Engagement Platform are divided into four levels in accordance with the Multi-Level Perspective:

  • PICO: persons in various roles, for instance as practitioners, engineers, managers, farmers, parents, public servants, researchers.
  • MICRO: organizations that own, maintain, and/or operate plants, land or service facilities, and employ multiple persons in their operations.
  • MESO: industry associations, standards organisations, engineering and science disciplines; these consolidate sectoral commons.
  • MACRO: International, regional, national and local authorities.

knowledge commons

In this menu a distinction is made between the SYSTEMATIZED knowledge commons that Pragmeta Knowledge Clout is advocating, and the ''traditional'' WEB-BASED MEDIA. Although these web-based media offer important advantages over traditional media such as print, the ease of producing content goes with fragmentation, information overload, dis-authentication and rewording, lost traceability, quality loss, etc.
