A new type of companies based on “on-demand economy” or “sharing-economy”,directly connecting customers to individual service providers, are emerging. These companies’ entire core business is run by workers classified as self-employed without any legal labour rights. In this context, employment is facing a great challenge. It has to deal with a completely different reality compared to the existing one.This panel will analyse the labour conditions of these workers and the legal challenges to protect the new business model and the its workers.

13:30 14:00 Social innovation in cities for the climate Jesus Iglesias (Ecopreneurs for the Climate) Social innovation and entrepreneurship, within collaborative networks of cities, can substantially contribute to addressing key socio-environmental challenges, like climate change and inequalities, by transforming the economy and driving important cultural shifts. To mainstream them, the following levers are very effective: enabling regulatory frameworks, innovation labs, multi-stakeholder ecosystems, peer-to-peer networks of social enterprises, and city-to-city cooperation schemes. On top of it all, the climate crisis provides immense opportunities for social entrepreneurship towards a post carbon and inclusive economy because, as stated in the IPCC SR15 report, limiting global warming to 1.5°C requires “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” and entails “clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems”.

The Performativity of Sharing* Grace Turtle (Holon) What does sharing mean to you? What does sharing mean to us as communities? What does sharing mean for the future of our cities? For the Sharing Cities Summit, we will facilitate a workshop on the making of sharing cities. As the boundaries and modes of sharing continue to evolve in our mutually dependent virtual and physical worlds, we must reflect on what sharing means for us as individuals and as communities before imagining the potentialities for sharing cities and economies. The workshop, designed for city-influencers, will engage participants through a series of performative design games to unveil ‘plural’ imaginaries for sharing cities to help city-influencers orientate actions towards sharing city-making.
