Cities promise broad access to the resources citizens need to create great lives and contribute to the common good. Unfortunately, this promise is rarely realized.

However, an unprecedented opportunity to strive for prosperity and sustainability through sharing has emerged due to new technology, intensifying urbanization, the empowerment of women and minorities , and a new generation’s preference for access versus ownership.
