Sharing Cities – An Evening With Shareable’s Neal Gorenflo

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We’d like invite you to an intimate discussion with Neal Gorenflo, executive director of Shareable on the evolution of the sharing economy, and his organization’s new book “Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons”, which showcases over a hundred sharing-related case studies and model policies from more than 80 cities in 35 countries.

“Sharing Cities” chronicles a growing global movement in which communities, organizations, and local governments are increasingly responding to challenges by turning to a basic human practice: sharing. By sharing their labor, space, goods, and more, people can overcome scarcity by building and maintaining vital common resources. The book serves as a practical reference guide for community-based solutions to urgent challenges faced by cities everywhere. It 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.
