Half of a hundred cities from around the planet are part of the task force of collaborative actions regarding challenges and opportunities of the platform economy. Who is part of this working group? What are their objectives? How can your city join?
The Platform Economy is a form of economic development based on the interactions among distributed groups of people supported by digital platforms. Platform Economy is growing exponentially and it is becoming a key priority of governments around the world. The disruptive impact of the best-known cases, for example, Airbnb or Uber, has generated a great deal of public controversy. Socially responsible platforms also exist, but have received less attention.
Half of a hundred cities from around the planet are already working around the topic of Sharing Cities and Platform Economy. From the Sharing Cities Action task force, we welcome you to be part of this international group.
