Sharing Cities Declaration

During the 2018 Sharing Cities Summit held in Barcelona, 42 large cities initiated a collaboration to address the threats and opportunities of the platform economy. This collaboration led to the Declaration of Common Principles and Commitments for Sharing Cities, which brings together the cities’ different viewpoints regarding the platform economy and updates and broadens the 7 principles established during the New York meeting in 2017.

It adds three new principles: one that differentiates between platform models, depending on their impact; another that advocates cities’ sovereignty with respect to the large digital platforms; and a third on public collaborative economy support policies that have a positive impact.
