‘Managing our Common Resources’ will start with an exploration of what we mean by the term ‘commons’, explore the notions of co-operation, self-interest and rational choice, and also tackle mis-understandings – particularly in relation to the concept of the ‘tragedy’ of the commons. Course participants will then be challenged to explore the nature of property rights, the role of trust and the characteristics of rules and institutions as foundations for collective action. The final section of the course will explore the means for strengthening institutions and the design principles for commons governance.
Who will Benefit from Taking the Course? The course is being targeted at practitioners involved in commons management and policymakers or others with responsibilities for management, or oversight, of use and access to commons resources. A wide range of community and non-government groups involved in creating or developing institutional arrangements for managing shared resources would also benefit.
Delivery - The course will be delivered through distance-learning approaches making use of video and audio materials, readings, on-line activities, and group discussion forums, enabling participants to learn from one another as well as from the tutors. The course will start on Monday Monday 5th February 2018 and finish on Friday 16th March 2018. NO bookings will be allowed after Monday 29th January 2018 at 10pm local time. Those completing the course will receive a Certificate of Completion from the University of Gloucestershire. Reference to linked-in ‘badge’
