Sharing Cities: Enabling Cooperation in the Platform Economy

UNSW Sydney is pleased to invite you to this


From participatory budgeting and municipal car sharing, to platform co-operatives, open design and shared energy infrastructure, communities are coming together in cities around the world to develop solutions for the common good.

Join Cr Jess Scully (City of Sydney) with Darren Sharp (Shareable and Social Surplus), and special guests Professor Bronwen Morgan (UNSW Law) and Professor Cameron Tonkinwise  (UNSW Art and Design), for the Sydney launch of Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons.

This new book for urban innovators, published by Shareable, contains 137 case studies and policies that showcase how cities and citizens around the world are using commons-based strategies to meet their needs in housing, food, mobility, work and energy.

As Director of Social Surplus and Australian editor of Shareable, he works with stakeholders to design programs that amplify the strengths of people and communities through sharing and envisioning the transition to socially just and sustainable futures.
