  • Logistics
Here are some important topics to be aware of: 
Ground transportation
From the Florence Airport, there is a  public bus to downtown Florence (20-30 minutes,  depending on traffic). The cost is 6 euro (10 euro return).  Bus shuttle schedule .
From the Pisa Airport, take a bus (the journey takes  around 70 minutes, traffic permitting). There are two companies that offer this service: Autostradale and Terravision. More here.
In both cases you will arrive at the main train station (S.M.Novella)
If you take the train and arrive at S.M.Novella train  station in  Florence, you can reach the Sportello on foot (20 minutes) or by bus n. C3 or 23A.
General public transport link: ATAF:  http://www.ataf.net
On March 9 at 5:00 pm we meet at Sportello EcoEquo, via dell'Agnolo 1/c.  
At 7:00 pm we will have a  buffet-supper at the Caffetteria delle Oblate, (2nd floor of the Biblioteca delle Oblate) in via dell'Oriuolo n.24, walking distance from the Sportello EcoEquo and the Duomo.

Jason N Note:  We cannot provide refunding for ground transportation, so you might  wish to check the public transport options and avoid taxis.  You need to  purchase bus tickets at Newstands or Bars with the sign "T-Tabacchi".

Silke H
  • -> Jason Nardi Wendy Brawer  Thadeus Protz  Kevin Flanagan I  am in touch with both, Claudia Gómez Portugal M  and Sebastian Romero from Vientos - but of of course it is very late; We', the conveners, have agreed to invest 1000 in flights; I've offered so far 500 (thinking that the other 500 would perhaps be needed for an USA flight (Tom); but actually the prices are 1350 Euro; 1400 ... So pls let me know: if we dare to invest more to support the flight for a mexican participant.) If so, I need to communicate this today, because they would need to take a flight on Wednesday/midday at the latest. 
Silke H
  • Given the late drop of from Anna and the fact that we don't hear back from Tom, I suggest we try everything to make them come over.
Thadeus P
  • That's really a bit late and dumping cash into flight companies :'(
Silke H
  • well, flights from Mexico are usually 1100 anyway 
Thadeus P
  • Good, let's hope at least one of the Mexicans and one from the U.S.A. inhabitants will be able to join.

  • Intro
Up to $5k seed funding for 5-7 labs,  anywhere in the world before 21 August 2017. The outcomes of the labs will be presented at a special science-policy session in Stockholm on 24 August 2017. Ultimately, our vision is for the labs to feed into the UN’s High Level Political Forum (HLPF) in 2018 which is framed as “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies”.

  • Intermapping Lab - an International Deep Dive* of Mapping Initiatives
Maps co-determine the way we perceive the world around us.  Mapping generates action as it guides the way we explore, assess, experience  and interpret the world. Maps and mapping are universally understood and contribute in a very palpable way to developing "world-views". In fact, maps change perceptions - this is too powerful to be left in the hands of huge corporations and their proprietarian platforms, or to be walled off by government and other institutions. 
Thadeus P
  • The 'me' in here may be a little too figurative.
The Intermapping Lab brings together technical people and non-technicians who have all produced:
• SSH maps and Transformap platform for the solidarity economy, including coops, local currencies, coworking hubs, degrowth think and do tanks, and social inclusion models, 
• Green Maps and OpenGreenMap platform for local sustainable living practicalities, nature and culture such as bike shops, solar sites, community gardens, eco centers and even toxic hot spots,
• community engagement processes and map marketing.
Staying abreast of innovation in mapping, data visualization and open data, we are software developers, designers, practiiioners, and researcher-activists, experienced in professional, hack and cooperative settings. The core team connected first over the Transformap http://transformap.co/  when Green Map provided its set of 170 icons for this platform in 2015. We met in 2016 and began planning the Intermapping for March - your timing is a great match for this Lab.  
  • Vision:
Collaboratively create a digital world wide atlas that is free, open and community governed. This altas - an interoperable map of maps - displays and links the enormous diversity of free, fair and sustainable production schemes and livelihoods, both in rural and urban contexts. 
  • Goal:
Our goal is to exchange and articulate a common framework for shared data beyond our own maps and processes. We will test this framework by applying it in a concrete region with assistance from local activists - namely the region around Florence. This will show the potential for how mapping alternatives can expand from the local to the global level. 
Mapping strategists and practitioners from several international projects will be invited by the group of conveners composed by members from ... Transformap: open source solidarity mapping platform-in-development (transformap.co) based in Germany and Austria
Green Map: 20 year old locally-led sustainability mapping movement activating communities in 65 countries (GreenMap.org) based in New York;
Ripess: international network that connects social solidarity economy networks throughout the world (ripess.org) based in all continents.

This group identified the need for an international Deep Dive (Lab) at an informal meeting during the World Social Forum (WSF) 2016 in Montreal. As we developed the concept further, we have invited participation from experts from Shareable, Open Street Map, Ushahidi, Wikidata / Data Commons, Solidarius Italy, Solidarity Economics Institute, ESSGlobal - Open Linked Data, Italia Che Cambia, Remix the Commons, Sarapis, Goteo, Vientos and the Latin American mapping community, with a maximum of 20 participants.

Our starting point is the recognition of TAPAS: 'There Are Plenty of AlternativeS', i.e. we will start honoring the work already done to map the places and projects at varying scales wherever they are. Exploring the challenges and potentials of mapping TAPAS together and doing it in a commons-friendly way leads us to a federated system of maps based on shared ideas and principles. An initial proposal for conceptualizing  mapping based on a commons framework has been made and will serve as a starting point for our debate.
Silke H We will articulate a common framework and the initial design of an open and interoperable platform for shared data about the diversity of alternatives to a growth-driven economy. 
Wendy B We will test this framework by applying it in a concrete region around Florence. At the local level, the start of an alternatives map will be created.  This will show the potential for how mapping alternatives can expand from the local to the global level and allow to create connections and collaborations, that can result in new forms of economic intelligence (Such alternatives are characterized by: short supply chains, collective distribution systems,  direct user-consumer-producer exchanges, local exchange trade systems,  platform cooperative practices...)
Report and clarification of future steps in the overall process for presentation in Stockholm.
