Launch of the Shared Cities Magazine #2 & Party

JUNE 15, 2018, PRAGUE: What sharing practices are currently employed in Central and Eastern Europe? Do we still want to live together? Is it even possible?Join our discussion and the launch of the second international issue of the acclaimed Magazyn Miasta/ Cities Magazine on sharing in post-communist cities.

Magazyn Miasta Res Publica

Last year in June we presented the first issue of the Shared Cities magazine exploring how the legacy of the communist system shapes everyday life and the current culture of sharing in Central and Eastern European cities. A year later, we take a closer look at the contemporary sharing culture in the region. What forms of sharing from communist times are still in use? What sharing practices do we employ today? What spheres of our urban lives are influenced by sharing? How much do people care about what they privately own?
