The World Economic Forum’s Collaboration in Cities: From Sharing to “Sharing Economy” has just been released. We as shareNL contributed to this whitepaper that addresses key terminology, motivation and benefits, and both the opportunities and challenges that cities encounter when approaching the new models of sharing. The different case studies from cities around the world – including Seattle, London, New York, Melbourne, Sao Paulo, Kigali (Rwanda), Seoul, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Kamaishi (Japan) – show how sharing is transforming citizens’ lives, boosting social cohesion and even protecting the environment.
