Community land trusts. Repair Cafes. Participatory Budgeting. In every domain of urban life, citizens are reclaiming power from the market and state to provide for their own needs - and now there's a manual that lays out over 100 case studies of how it's done. Join us for a potluck dinner and intimate conversation with visiting author Tom Llewellyn, project manager and editor of the new book, "Sharing Cities, Activating the Urban Commons".
"Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons" showcases over a hundred sharing-related case studies and model policies from more than 80 cities in 35 countries. It witnesses a growing global movement and serves as a practical reference guide for community-based solutions to urgent challenges faced by cities everywhere. This book is a call to action meant to inspire readers, raise awareness, and strengthen the sharing movement worldwide. "Sharing Cities" shows that not only is another world possible — but that much of it is already here.
Interested in joining us? Bring a dish, a container/utensil, and your own ideas about reclaiming the urban commons. Email Tom(at) Shareable.net to RSVP and get the exact address! (***Address on map is not the location of the event)
