Book launch at Baumhaus!
Another world is not just possible — much of it is already here. From open source software in Munich, to participatory budgeting in Porto Alegre, people are reclaiming their cities as commons through bottom-up sharing practices and crafting supportive local policies. "Sharing Cities" co-author Adrien Labaeye will present the collaboratively written book and its alternative narrative, fleshed out by over a hundred case studies from the growing global sharing movement. It's a book meant as a call to action, so let's discuss with Adrien: What's the potential for replicating initiatives and scaling sharing in Wedding and Berlin? What can we do?
Join us for an inspiring evening at Baumhaus project space. There will be soup and selfmade sourdough bread to share!
19:30 Doors open
19:45 Start of presentation
Entrance free, donations always welcome.
