Join us at the Urban Sharing Society Workshop on 7 February in Wuppertal

Can sharing as a guiding principle and strategy for sustainable development provide new impetus for sustainable living and economic activity in cities? How can urban space and coexistence be shaped in such a way that everyone can benefit from (alternative) prosperity as well as social and ecological sustainability? How is it possible to facilitate cooperative patterns in the design of (urban) transformation processes?

We want to discuss these questions together with you based on inputs from research and practice. The concept of an Urban Sharing Society should serve as a guiding idea for the discussion and describes the frame within which cities could develop more sustainably: A future urban society could be based on governance principles of sharing and participation, redefining prosperity and conserving resources and thus create an alternative paradigm of urban development.
