As official advisors to the mayor of Seoul we joined forces with global and local experts at the Seoul Sharing Festival, to push further its Sharing City program. Four years after Seoul, seven other South-Korean cities signed a joint declaration to become Sharing Cities together. A few days later Harmen and I did a keynote and moderated a roundtable at the 30th anniversary of EUROCITIES, the largest city-network in Europe. This year’s theme was ‘Sharing Cities' and I had the honor to be a juror at the EUROCITIES Sharing Cities awards in Milan. We learned that dozens of European cities are interested in becoming Sharing Cities, and many interesting projects and policies are happening. 
As we approach the end of 2016, we are ready to take the Sharing City movement to the next level with the ‘
Sharing City Alliance.’ A growing coalition of cities, ready to enable the opportunities and tackle the challenges of the collaborative economy. Will you join us?
PAÏVÄÄ! Or: good afternoon in Finnish! Sam bumped into Santa Claus during her two days in Helsinki, and found some of the latest Finnish Smart & Sharing insights (such as pro-active taxi (Uber) regulation & the world's first MaaS app!) Read more about how the Finnish outsmart us...
A ROAD TRIP FROM ONE 'G' TO ANOTHER Not only does the pronunciation of the 'G' differ per city - both Groningen and Ghent have their own challenges and opportunities when it comes to the collaborative economy. Ananda and Samantha went on a road trip from the North to the South to inspire during the LetsGro Festival and the SelfCity Ghent Inspiration Day.
GUESTBLOG: TO SHARE OR NOT TO SHARE Although a lot of people are willing to share, the percentage of people that are actually sharing is tiny. Niels de Greef, founder of ParkFlyRent, explains how sharing was a transformative power in his life.
UBER FOR X, AIRBNB FOR Y: SHOW ME MORE THAN THE MONEY Last newsletter, we shared Pieters key learning points about his contribution to Nesta's ShareLab in London. But what does the ShareLab entail exactly? Nesta explains how the ShareLab Fund will support and fund ideas that use platform business models to make a real social impact.

ANANDA SHARED HER PURPOSE De Droomfabriek hosted the first Purpose Day, full of energy and inspiration. It's about time that organisations don't just want to be the best in the world, but also want to do the best for the  world. Ananda shared her journey towards purpose and knowledge of the collaborative economy with the audience. Brands like Patagonia, Return to Sender, and Rituals were  present. All in all: plenty of challenges and opportunities to start or keep working from a purpose-driven point of view.
SNAPPING SOME PICTURES WITH A LOT OF CARS Following the Green Deal we are always working to give car sharing a boost. Currently we are building an independent informative website. And a good website needs clear pictures! So we got out on the streets and managed our models, half a dozen cars from different platforms, and a handful of extra's - all in the city centre. It wasn't easy, but it sure was a lot of fun! Curious about the results? Keep an eye on our social channels because the website will be in the air by tomorrow!
GRAB YOUR AGENDA AND BLOCK DEC 21st Because it's official! Our last meetup of the year will take place on the 21st of December at Pakhuis de Zwijger at 19:00. Join us in this overview of the sharing economy: past, present and future through the eyes of different stakeholders. Let's end the year the way our meetups are known: informative but personal and relaxed.  Reserve you spot here (it's free!) and stay tuned for details of our speakers!
