Author: Amsterdam

Date of publish: 2016

What's the main topic of the Summit?

 Experts and policymakers coming from 10 cities from around the world gathered together in Amsterdam to discuss about this new pathway, and the challenges and opportunities. This first initiative (First Round Table) was aimed at establishing some working common ground between the experts to discuss upon to, and to be followed by a Second Round Table to be held in NYC.

Key findings:

  • Disruptive nature of the sharing economy. Potential effects over city dynamics and effect of such on citizens. 
  • How to monitor the potential positive and negative impacts, and how to deal with that information.
  • Pilot project.
