NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR OLD ASSETS, COMMON FUTURES, UK
Annemarie Naylor, Director of Common Futures, has been heavily involved in supporting the transfer of buildings and land to community ownership across the UK and, in 2014, was awarded an MBE by the Queen for her work. Annemarie gives a quick overview of asset transfer policy and then focuses down on some of her cutting-edge work around supporting communities to become part of an increasingly digital society – examples include Common Libraries/maker spaces and community-owned ICT networks and data co-ops.
