Lunch MeetUp: Where #SharedPlatforms meet #SharingCities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

**Meet at "COOPERATIVE" meeting-point (by the Group Up Stand)**

True sharing involves distributing value, ownership, and governance. This doesn’t seem to work well in a profit-at-any-cost environment, typical of most corporate charters. Enter #PlatformCooperativism, a new movement of business and civic action, using digital or non-digital platforms as a means of sharing and distributing value more widely with its users, members, citizens and employees than traditional extractive business models are incentivized to, or built for.

Can we extend true sharing at the city level and imagining #SharingCities as an ecosystem of interconnected #PlatformCoops? As a network of decentralized platforms that are initiated, organized, run, owned and governed (to a large extent) by the people and for the people of a particular city or territory? 

Let’s discuss the model of using a #SharingCity as a platform. Can we offer citizens lower barrier to entry points of participation, helping everyone contribute to society as a whole? Where the stakeholders are also turned into shareholders?

This lunchtime chat invites participants to discuss with us how cities can utilize, incentivize, protect, and profit from civic action, creating citizen producers through a value sharing platform.

If you’re interested in this discussion, please also join us for “Return of the Co-op,” a workshop further exploring platform cooperativism.
