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.

There are two things going on around us, one is about bringing the market to every corner of our life and the other is about control, using the pervasive surveillance of control, or whether it i for controlling a population.
One of the benefits is the ability to resist this, on either, of state control or market control.
You were invited for the Declaration on the Collaborative Economy, what is the challenges of the cities participating in the summit?
So the sharing cities summit for me was very much about a large number of cities who are still in a minority in the world coming together.
Not just dealing with Uber and Airbnb but as an oportunity to create a genuine alternative model of production
20 years ago if you said to a room full of economist and told them most of the software in the world will be made by volunteers you would have been laughed out of the room.
This represents the possibility of an economy based on social exchange as a genuine alternative.
The end of this period of 35 years where neoliberalism was dominant. What has emerged is nationalist populism where a leader tells people that they will be ok.
The great thing about cities
living in communities of practice to manage the environment together as distinct ways of producing critical goods in the urban setting based on a model of production that treats each other as peers rather than just customers and sellers.
Bart- Among the public we have people from Open Food Network, we had Som Mobilitat, or Som Energia, how do you see this scaling or happening else where
Benkler - We got to a certain scale with open source projects and wikipedia but then we encountered an amount of blowback and the research community came to understand (I mean the research communities) the importance of the commons.
Bart - Something like Som Mobilitat, the firs step is for a city like barcelona to make them know, the second step is to integrate them into the managing of the city,
Benkler - You don't have control over the school education system so you can't bring moodle in the system but you can work with other cities and encourage them to adopt it.
The idea of the city to become a hub that provides space for basic necessities is critical.
When you enable citizens to contribute on a participatory platform.
The city provides a model of thinking of itself as playing a major role in the promotion of public commons partnerships.
Bart - Many people watching the streaming
You see a broad alliance of cities sharing experiences of what they are trying to do.
If Bologna describes the guide for riders, and Barcelona can bring their practices to other cities, the first thing to come and do at this point is to look at what comes out of the sharing cities summit. If you are in a city that isn't there bring it to your representatives.
A lot of cities are dealing with the same problems, like uber or airbnb and setting commonified relationships, showing them what you are doing you are giving them an important source of learning for communities.
Bart There is this climate collapse going on. Extreme regimes.
Benkler - There is a classic statement about the urgent and the important, in any commuity there are urgent and you need to go out and act as an activist, but you cant build long term project purely as a matter of urgency. Not to let the urgent crowd out the long term important, long term, genuinely transformational projects.
We'll focus on the long term, then.
