Shareable is partnering with Tufts University on this special series hosted by professor Julian Agyeman (Co-chair of Shareable’s Board) and Cities@Tufts. Initially designed for Tufts students, faculty, and alumni, the colloquium has been opened up to the public with the support of Shareable and The Kresge Foundation.
Cities@Tufts Lectures explores the impact of urban planning on our communities and the opportunities to design for greater equity and justice.

Collective Governance, an Enabling State, Pooling Economies, Experimentalism, and Technological Justice: these are the five design principles of The Co-Cities Protocol.
Together, they set up the necessary conditions to rethink the city as a commons: the inclusive space where various initiatives of collective action for the urban commons emerge, relate, and become sustainable.
In this week’s episode, professor Sheila Foster discusses her work with LabGov, Co-Cities, and how urban commons can be created and sustained in different political, social, and economic environments.
