Elinor Ostrom Day

Online Summit

Day: September 23rd

Time: 10:00 (NYC) / 15:00 (London) / 16:00 (Barcelona)

In 2009, Elinor Ostrom won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for her contributions to the governance of shared resources. Ostrom’s work showed the value of building multinational, multidisciplinary, and comparative research bridging the social and natural sciences and the complexity of institutions and governance systems. Her ideas on polycentric governance and shared collective action have played out around the world, from Maine lobster fisheries, to ancient waterways in Spain, to taxicabs in Nairobi.

The Elinor Ostrom Day will gather some of the most prominent scholars from universities, research centers and think tanks across borders to discuss her contributions to today´s most pressing challenges, including climate change, the housing crisis and urban governance.
