Lately, I’ve been discussing a concept for sort of commune which would evolve out of a university model. Today, many universities strive for community and self-sufficiency, such that students regularly are either employed or volunteer to maintain the school. What if this model could be extended, and provide a self-sufficient voluntary creative and educational organization? What would a free/libre university look like?
In these articles, I hope to explore “Libreversity”, or a university based on concepts found in time banking (mutualism), which could provide both free education for all and a viable strategy to “vertically integrate” alternative institutions.
