The third edition of the Sharing Cities Summit will take place in Barcelona 12-15 of November 2018. It follows the previous edition of the Sharing City Summit held in 2017 in NYC, and in 2016 in Amsterdam. The event will gather Mayors and Deputy Mayors from leading cities from around the world, and actors of the sharing ecosystem, to discuss how the continuous growth of sharing economies impacts the life and economic development of the cities. The participants will consider what innovative measures can be taken to meet the challenges and opportunities we face, such as how to differentiate between digital platforms, based on the model of collaboration of its users that is applied. This year’s Summit will focus on defining a “Declaration of principles and commitments for a Sharing City”, and will stimulate concrete collaboration between cities.
After the Mayors encounter, on 12 November there will be a public event in the evening. On 13, 14 and 15 November, a part of this year’s Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC18), there will be topic at the congress dedicated to “Inclusive and Shared Cities“
The talks and debates of the summit are documented through collaborative reporting to Teixidora.
“… This working open session will focus on governance, economic sustainability and experimental participation of data commons. The discussion will be based on the Digital Democracy and Data Commons (DDDC) pilot of DECODE project.
Speakers: DDDC Pilot Team

We are going to do a workshop on Decode project on how to decide together what we want to do with data.
We will present Decode project and what we are doing with Decidim
We will have an experimental action, we have a prototype already functioning, and we'd like you to be part of it.
The area will be divided in 3 groups to focus on the challenges and oportunities.
Antonio Calleja and Enric Senabre
An Horizon 2020 project, 2016-18 coordinated by Barcelona City Council
Begins with a diagnosis of the current economy, as data as the new oil of capitalism
some actors can act uppon this data, how a communication strategy firm can use data through facebook to influence and affect democracy
de key question for decode is to regain control on our data, what we share and with whom, data sovereingty,
Decode project has 3 elements, smart contracs social and economic elements and a set of pilots two in amsterdam and in barcelona
digital democracy in the commons, and Iot Valeria
Pilot in Barcelona, decidim and decode
improve decidim and push forward the decode vision of data sovereignty
how to regain control on our collective lives, how to decide collectivelly on collective matters.
We will generate a set of tools, set up e-petitons, are allowed in decidim
decode allows for
an app that you have on your mobile, you can put data of yourself
if you want to sign an e-petition on decidim you can do it even though decidim doesn't know who you are
The challenge of data commons:
1. we are doing a 4-month open deliberation process that will have as a result a white paper
We are at the stage of accumulating proposals by different actors.
2. All the data generated in this process will be open and their use will be decided by the people who are taking part in the project.
This means that we are being prefigurative: we are trying to create and practice data commons while deliberating and talking about data commons.
We first run a diagnosis of the situation on data regulations and economics
then we gather proposals
a stage of debate starts
a deliberation between citizens and decode
a signature process in which we will be using the app to sign the process
and we'll have an evaluation process
The results of this process will be:
2. the development of a decode participatory white paper
we will move now into working groups.
the workshop will be documented by Teixidora, we are on the mindset of open knowledge
Table n.1 Data laws and regulations
We did a diagnosis on the legal aspects of Decode technology
3 paradigms have to do with legal data:
- personal data because it is a human right
- economic data-
- means of control from security systems
GDPR is good but we should not have the idea that we are secure with it
Free licences and open data - we have digital commons that are made of personal data, like Wikipedia, every contribution is attached to a person, so this is personal data or software that is made by many coders
We analised the concept of free licences, it started in software in the 80s they have evolved and now we have a lot of software regulated by freelicences, in the last decade they started to apply to data, CC Attribution ShAlike for example
Q. what does free licence mean? is not that open is good and proprietary is bad, because open also need to monetise their project.
The empirical findings say if you ask for big tasks you have to incentivise with money but small tasks are easier to do with no monetary incentive
The expression free software - free as freedom and gratis
The aim of the workshop is to make proposals on the diagnosis.
Wikipedia and Kernel linux are platforms of personal data and need to think about how to cover privacy
licences are a personal act a unilateral act, but we can use blockchain, through smart contracts you can make acts not coming from the creator of data, I can say I will allow access to my personal data provided that you promise to treat that data in such way. this opens the possiblity to use smart contracts in a different way.
Based on these assumptions we discuss opertunites
particular proposals tackling
Table n.2 Data economics and sovereignity
In this group we have:
1. many proposals for the first column, focused on the "value for economic profit" model
2. we have also the media dimension in the second column
We need more time and proposals for the other 2 columns.
3. the "open for all" model
4. the commons model
At the end we were talking about who has the actual knowledge to access these open data [in the the "open for all" model]: usually it's the big corporations who take advantage of it. This is something important to think about.
Table n.3 Data governance
(Antonio Calleja) governance is about power, who controls the data, who is making decisions.
awareness was the first keyword, so workshops about how to use public sector data
crossing all the data so the system will be more efficient
transparency was one of the words
how to coordinate all different actors, because governance is not vertical, is about all the actors and how to measure the services, and by the government itself by doing some assessment, studies...
Table n.4 . Challenges and opportunities of what we actually do with data commons.

Resultats extrets del que s'ha tractat a l'esdeveniment.
Riscos / debilitats / mancances
- Who has the actual knowledge to access these open data in the the "open for all" model, usually it's the big corporations who take advantage of it,
- There is work to be done on awareness to protect new smart tools for people to have data protection
Oportunitats / fortaleses
- If you are one you have no leverage to make pressure on how to regulate data, come as a collective.,
- Anonymization also works better when there are more people,
- Visualise the economical value produced by the exploitation of your data,
- Strengthen data portability,
- There is something in GDPR a potential to protecting more people,
- Work to be done on awareness to protect new smart tools for people to have data protection,
- For companies to regain trust, adopting a more ecological approach to data process,
- Create and practice data commons while deliberating and talking about data commons (Decidim)
