Description

David Bollier:

"What exactly is a “sharing city”? It’s one that encourages carsharing and bikesharing programs through specific policies, such as designating “pick-up spots” for ridesharing and altering local taxes to make carsharing more attractive. A sharing city is one that encourages urban agriculture on vacant lots and allows homegrown vegetables to be sold in the neighborhood. A shareable city supports innovations like shared workspaces, shared commercial kitchens, community-financed start-ups, community-owned commercial centers, and spaces for “pop-up” businesses. It also encourages home-based micro-enterprises by lowering permitting barriers." (http://bollier.org/blog/how-build-%E2%80%9Cshareable-city%E2%80%9D)
