<nettime> Sharing Cities Summit 2018 Barcelona 12th-15th November 2018

Join the Sharing Cities Summit 2018 Barcelona from 12th to 15th November 2018

The Sharing Cities Summit 2018 will take place in Barcelona next 12th-15th November 2018.

After the previous Summit editions in Amsterdam 2016 and New York 2017, this Summit edition will expand its scope and consist on a city government encounter, and also an event to gather all actors of the Sharing economy ecosystem, for co-creating the Sharing City framework and aligning the platform economy with the general common interest. Join us and let’s shape together the future of the sharing ecosystem!

This year’s edition will be divided into different venues and moments. On the one hand, an  encounter between Mayors and Vice Mayors from city governments from leading cities from around the world will take place on November 12th. The cities of Amsterdam, New York, Paris, Milan, Montreal, Toronto, Montevideo, Kobe, Vienna, Barcelona, Singapore, Seoul, Austin, Torino, Portland, Madrid and Valencia, among others, have confirmed or shown their intention to attend this edition. The encounter will focus on boosting concrete commons outcomes and collaboration measures in areas including: co-creating  common principles for The Sharing City; collaborations between cities on the regulation and negotiation with large platforms that generate disruptive impacts in the city; promotion and occupation policies on platform models inclusive and beneficial for the general common interest; and, knowledge’s policies and a sharing open data platform between cities. In addition, the event will deal with innovative measures to differentiate digital platforms which are not built on truly collaborative models.

On the other hand, a program addressed to all actors of the Sharing Ecosystem (city governments, companies, foundations, networks, and research centers) will take place on November 12th afternoon on a public meet up, and on November 13th-15th as part of the Smart City World Congress Expo. Smart City Expo World Congress is the world leading encounter on cities technologies, gathering more than 700 cities and 18.000 participants. Participating at the Summit will be a great occasion to spread your organization’s mission, to network with other actors, and to build together a Sharing economy ecosystem!
