***The Transforming Economies Series: Barcelona’s Sharing Economy***
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
My research over the last two years for my book in progress has made one thing abundantly clear: real and lasting change is going to come from the local level, respond to local conditions, and create new and varied approaches to shaping an inclusive economy and a healthy place for all to live and work. Today’s post share the experiences of Barcelona in developing a sharing and inclusive economy. Thanks Shareable for the information!
“When the City Council of Barcelona asked democracy activist and researcher Mayo Fuster Morell for policy recommendations regarding the sharing economy, she suggested that the councillors take a different approach: Rather than relying on an expert to dictate policy from the top down, why not use a collaborative process to build a sustainable set of institutions and practices that would draw strength from the grassroots?”
