SIBEC – the Italian School for Common Goods

April - June 2018


Euricse, Labus and the University of Trento have founded SIBEC the first school in Italy focused on collaborative management of commons. The goal is to combine research, knowledge, and networks of relationships in order to train professionals that can bring to the management of common goods a shared approach based on the involvement of the local community and capable of tapping the potential of community assets while preventing any type of speculation.

The 2018 training opportunities include a “Basic Course” and an intensive 4-day campus “SIBEC Lab”, as well as various local and thematic courses and seminars. SIBEC trainings propose concrete tools and share efficient and replicable solutions for local communities. The courses aim to build upon new development contexts considering which operational practices and entrepreneurial solutions contribute to making the commons a driver for inclusive development.

Local government officials interested in engaging with active citizens within a “shared administration” framework, in order to facilitate the collective care of the material and immaterial common goods in their communities. Professionals and community members interested in managing common goods in an economically sustainable way, creating opportunities for local development and increased wellbeing.

The third national SIBEC course will begin in April 2018. For details on this course and all of SIBEC’s current activities, visit the school’s website at
