Technology is fundamentally changing the way we live, work, and use space. Cities have always facilitated the sharing of space, infrastructure, and culture, but our newfound connectivity is elevating the "sharing economy" to a level with impacts for land use and transportation planning, economic and community development, and sustainability. As these new models challenge current practices, outdated rules, and vested interests, how can planners and policymakers best capture their positive and negative effects?
"Planning for the Sharing Economy" will use the lens of urban planning to focus a forward-thinking conversation on transportation network companies, short-term rentals, co-working spaces and more among academics, policymakers, and practitioners. Confirmed participants include:
Rick Cole, LA City Deputy Mayor of Budget & Innovation
Mark Vallianatos, Policy Director, Urban & Environmental Policy Institute, Occidental College
Brian Taylor, Director, Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs
Paavo Monkkonen, Assistant Professor, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs
Marzia Zafar, Policy & Planning Director, California Public Utilities Commission
Eric Spiegelman, President, LA City Taxicab Commission
Christine Outram, Invention Director, Deutsch LA and Founder, City Innovation Group
Robert Egger, Founder, LA Kitchen

The conversation will be moderated by James Brasuell, Managing Editor, Planetizen.
