Sharing Cities

The idea of sharing has never been more prevalent than it is today. Communities, organizations and local governments are developing innovative ways to address many of the biggest challenges that our cities now face by sharing labor, knowledge, space and goods. A new book, Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons, highlights best practices in the sharing movement from around the world. Hear why sharing is for much more than just cars and apartments, learn what’s being done locally and discover how you can play a part.
