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.

It will feature 130 replicable case studies and model policies from around the world and serve as a guide to those interested in supporting new or existing sharing projects. It's our most ambitious editorial project to date. 

We need your support to complete the book and share it with as many people as possible. If you give today, you will be the first to receive a free Creative Commons-licensed PDF version. 

At a time of great challenges, we need to share our resources more than ever to build a more equitable, resilient, and joyful world — please support Shareable today and get our new book.

Thank you,
Tom Llewellyn
