Encounter 2019

Let’s work together with all the stakeholders in the Sharing Cities ecosystem to devise a plan of shared actions and resources at the Sharing Cities Action Encounter 2019. The event will take place from 19 to 21 November during the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona.

Following on the heels of last year’s Sharing Cities Summit, hosted by the city of Barcelona, the Sharing Cities Action Encounter 2019 will once again bring the entire Sharing Cities ecosystem together and turn Barcelona into the epicentre of debate on the platform and collaborative economies.

The 2018 Summit gave rise to insightful discussions about how the unrelenting growth of the collaborative economy and digital platforms is affecting cities’ life and economic development, a conversation which ultimately led to the signing of the Sharing Cities Declaration. Now, in 2019, a number of cities, activists, organizations, researchers, and members of civil society are set to again meet at the Sharing Cities Action Encounter 2019 to work together to devise the 2020 Action Plan for the Platform Economy and the Collaborative Economy. Our three-day programme, taking place at the Stand Lab at the Smart City Expo World Congress, aims to develop alternative models for the future with three main focuses: (1) Platform Labour; (2) Inclusion & Gender; and (3) Data Commons.
