Platform Cooperativism Resource Library


Dieter Janecek at Who Owns the World Conference, convened by the Platform Cooperativism Consortium at The New School in November 2019. Janecek is a guest speaker for the Platform Co-ops & the Green New Deal panel discussion. No issue is more pressing than the climate crisis! Digital technologies can either help ameliorate this crisis or they can worsen it. Can co-ops be an alternative to extractive capitalism that refuses to acknowledge the impending catastrophe? How do we democratize the digital economy in the time of the Green New Deal?
Dieter is a member of the German Parliament since 2013. He was elected as a spokesperson for the digital economy and digital transformation for the parliamentary group of his political party Bündnis 90/Die Grünen (Green Party). Janacek is also engaged in a wide range of other political or civil associations and committees (e.g. the political advisory committee of the Federation of the Entrepreneurs Associations, the political advisory committee of the German AI Federation, the political advisory committee of the Federation 3D printing).
