How Block By Block uses video games for participatory city planning

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 19:21:44 +0000

Here's the problem: Urban planning has historically relied on top-down processes in which technical experts create land use designs that are then authorized by municipal officials. Even though international development agencies and many professional planners have endorsed the extensive research supporting participatory approaches, the wide variety of challenges that each urban planning project faces has made it difficult to establish transferable methods, even among wealthier cities in the world.

Sharing Cities: Using Urban Data to Reclaim Public Space as a Commons

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 17:30:01 +0000

You may have heard of smart cities that use data to improve urban networks like public transportation systems. In the shadow of this well-marketed story is another narrative around data in the city; a story where the right to the city extends to the digital realm. Here are two initiatives where reclaiming citizens' control over data has enabled practices that run counter to mainstream narratives of market-driven urban development — practices of commoning data and urban spaces, together.

Read an Excerpt from Creative Commons' Upcoming Book — 'Made with Creative Commons'

Mon, 01 May 2017 23:29:12 +0000

About 1.5 years ago, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, we set out to research and write a book about the ways creators and businesses make money when they share their work using Creative Commons licensing. We had a particular vision for the work. We would identify and interview 24 diverse enterprises. We would analyze their revenue models and customer segments. We would figure out what makes them work and turn it into advice that applies to everyone.

How Neighbors in Canada Used a Gift Registry to Welcome Refugees

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:13:09 +0000

My brother taught English to recent immigrants to the U.S. He used to talk about a student who had recently moved to Salem, Massachusetts, from Turkey. She would confide in him about how much she and her family missed Turkey — in particular, their tight-knit community where neighbors looked out for one other. The family moved to the U.S. because they believed it would improve their lives, but they were so lonely that they often wished they could return home.

Bright, Ambitious Future for Sharing Cities in the New Year

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 18:06:44 +0000

Here at Shareable, we're huge advocates for "Sharing Cities." Since our founding, we've connected thousands of people interested in sharing and published hundreds of stories about how cities can help them share more. But readers have frequently asked us, “What does Sharing Cities mean? Why are they important today?”

That's why we've been working with 20 researchers, community organizers, and policy experts from 10 countries to crowdsource a book about Sharing Cities. We’ll be releasing our new book, "Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons," early next year.
