Just around the corner, in the heart of Amsterdam, there’s a house high mural painting stating ‘Ik speel in de stad met alles wat er bestaat’, in other words ‘I play in the city with everything there is.’ It actually is a quote by a young boy from a school nearby. For me, this motto is the metaphor of a true ‘sharing city.’ Let’s face it: all we need is already there, right at your doorstep. Look around in your own neighborhood, in your own community. From a helping hand to someone who can cook a meal for you; from a ladder you can borrow from a neighbor to a car when you want to leave town. Sometimes really the only thing you have to do is ask. And share.
