About the Sharing Cities Summit Barcelona 2018:

The third edition of the Sharing Cities Summit will take place in Barcelona 12-15 of November 2018. It follows on from the Sharing City Summit held in 2017 in NYC, and in 2016 in Amsterdam. The event will gather together Mayors and Deputy Mayors from leading cities from around the world, and actors of the sharing ecosystem, to discuss how the continuous growth of sharing economies impacts the life and economic development of the cities, and what innovative measures can be taken to meet the challenges and opportunities we face, such as how to differentiate digital platforms which are not constructed on truly collaborative models. This year’s Summit will focus on defining a “Declaration of principles and commitments for a Sharing Cities”, and boosting concrete collaboration between cities.

As part of the Sharing Cities Summit, on 12 November a city government encounter and a public event in the evening will take place. On 13, 14 and 15 November, as part of this year Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC18), there will be topic at the congress dedicated to “Inclusive and Shared Cities“. Among those keynote speakers confirmed are Yochai Benkler, Juliet Schor, Rufus Pollock and Muhammad Yunus, among others experts, and Gerardo Pisarello (Deputy Mayor, Barcelona City Council), Alicia Glen (Deputy mayor, NYC), Udo Kock (Deputy Mayor, Amsterdam), Antoinette Guhl (Paris Deputy Mayor), Cristina Tajani (Milan Deputy Mayor). The sharing ecosystem will have its own Sharing pavilion at the SCEWC expo (with already 70 companies, research centers and other actors confirmed, and the 30 cities attending the Summit), acting as a central space holding presentations, debates, round tables and showcasing projects that are part of this new economic model.
