About the Sharing Cities Alliance  
The Sharing Cities Alliance is an independent foundation that connects cities from all continents, and fosters city-to-city learning, empowering city governments to continuously address the sharing economy. We do this by co-organizing a yearly summit, organizing quarterly online seminars and one-on-one meetings with city officials from participating cities. Right now, New York City, Toronto, Washington D.C., Dallas, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, The Hague, Seoul and Singapore have joined officially and multiple other cities are in the process of joining (including Vancouver, Madrid, Barcelona, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Tapei, Tokyo, Adelaide and Quito). Knowledge-wise we have created the 'Alliance Lexicon', which is a constantly evolving database with case studies, research and policies for and by the cities. In a monthly magazine we update all cities on the latest developments.
