With Ukraine, Serbia and Romania representing the leading providers of digital platform
With Ukraine, Serbia and Romania representing the leading providers of digital platform workers in Europe and beyond, eastern and southeastern Europe deserve a close look within the context of the future of work and gig economy. Yet, the different effects of platformization on the economies and societies in these European regions have not been thoroughly examined nor fully understood. To fill this gap, the regional edition of the conference in Novi Sad aims to open discussions about the anticipated impacts of the platform economy on workers, businesses, and societies in these parts of Europe. The conference offers a curated program with an excellent line-up of speakers, amongst them academics, entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial blockbusters, regional and national policymakers, union organizers, and platform workers. Scheduled for the 27th & 28th of February 2020 in Novi Sad, Serbia — the forthcoming European Capital of Culture 2021 — the conference focuses on the future outlook of eastern and southeastern European countries in the context of the platform economy.

If you could learn first-hand from normal, every-day people just like you,
If you could learn first-hand from normal, every-day people just like you, who have already achieved financial independence and early retirement, would you do it? On March 7th, 2020 at the University of Cincinnati, we invite you to the EconoMe Conference. The EconoMe Conference has roots in the FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early) which is a lifestyle movement with the goal of financial freedom. We're bringing together leading experts from the FIRE movement for a 1-day event to guide us in questioning our assumptions about happiness, freedom, and prosperity through the lens of personal finance. More specifically, attendees will learn: - How to aggressively crush your student loan and other debt through resourcefulness. - How to use investments to make your money work harder than you ever could. - 7 ways to escape the rat race and create your own financial freedom. - How to feel the freedom of early retirement through intentional living. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with and learn from hundreds of others in the FIRE movement, check out the new documentary Playing with FIRE, and enjoy a rocking after-party.

The most pressing challenges facing cities today, including wealth inequality, environmental pollution, climate resilience, and social isolation, have the potential to be mitigated by the efficient and equitable sharing of vital resources with each other. Building upon Shareable’s years of experience covering the ‘sharing ecosystem’ and the 137 model policies and case studies curated for the new book, “Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons,” Tom Llewellyn will show how the real sharing economy is already connecting people together, empowering community-led disaster recovery efforts, and working under the radar to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, a quiet revolution has been percolating
In the wake of Hurricane Maria, a quiet revolution has been percolating on the island of Puerto Rico. What began as an impromptu community kitchen meant to help feed survivors in the town of Caguas quickly grew into an island-wide network of mutual aid centres (Centros de Apoyo Mutuo) with the ultimate goal to restore power — both electric and civic — to the people. For the past 18 months, Shareable has been working with a team of filmmakers, writers, audio engineers, partners, and funders to share this story with the world. The 30-minute micro-budget documentary explores community-led disaster response and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico; letting the people involved in the mutual aid centres tell their own stories of the storm, recovery, and the tenuous relationship between the Puerto Rican people and the government. Despite the grave nature of this storm, which many believe to be the worst disaster to hit the United States or its territories in the past 100 years, this story is also celebratory. For some, there is a deep joy that has accompanied the sadness; a feeling of solidarity and possibility that didn’t previously exist in the same way before the storm. The film also acts as a reminder of how damaging climate-fueled disasters can be and urges us to consider how resilient our communities are, how best to adapt for the changes ahead, and how to respond and rebuild in a just and equitable way with extra consideration for the most vulnerable populations. Tom Llewellyn from Shareable, will introduce the film and answer questions afterwards. The event is free but donations towards Tom's travel and Shareable's work are very welcome.
