Milan SmartUps, 2020

Smart City Milan, awarded 2019 Wellbeing City by NewCities, is considered a pioneering examples of  promoting a sharing economy.  Milan emphasises social innovation as a means of creating social and economic value from
its sharing initiatives, including shared use of spaces, creativity, transport, gardens and technology. A sharing advisory panel was established: city council departments for mobility, culture, sport, planning, and employment work together to identify and design social innovation activities. All dimensions of the sharing economy framework are in place in Milan. For example, technologically it is the most wired city in Europe, with Free-WiFi from over 600 access points.
