ECO-autonomous work
From job sustainability to life practicality

"The work I do is not actually a job but rather a way of life".

In a world where work dominates our day-to-day life and defines our social identity, new entities are emerging (such as ethical purchasing groups, self-managed markets and centres for experimental self-development) that base their activity on the self-organisation of production, social creation and on relationships of useful (not utilitarian) reciprocity between worker-producers and  self-aware citizens. Thanks to these practices, labour/work is gaining values, emotions and quality of experience. An innovative approach, based on a strong application of autonomy, that each player expresses by creating a new language that allows them to express the new, different ways of working and living.

Lucia Bertell lives and works in Verona, where she co-founded Studio Guglielma and TiLT/Territori in libera transizione, a cross-university group on new citizenship practices. She has a long standing interest in participatory design and social research on labour.
