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.

With non-profit organizations rethinking their strategies, local development programs and their own role in a changing world, Matthijs Nederveen and Samantha van den Bos believe the sharing economy is a topic, or a tool worth exploring. That's what we did on the 2nd of February. We came together and explored the current state, the development, opportunities and challenges of the collaborative economy in the global south at our shareNL home, in collaboration with The Spindle. And we did more than talking. Some good ideas were presented, and will be further developed. Read the full report by Elena Presas Batlló. (thank you!)
