Fairbnb.coop: a sustainable rental platform

16-5-19 19:00 - 16-5-19 21:00
Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam

The initial brainstorming sessions of Fairbnb in Amsterdam were held at Waag… almost 3 years ago! Now the project is about to start, and Amsterdam will be one of its pilot cities.

Fairbnb.coop is a digital cooperative working to facilitate authentic, sustainable and intimate travel experiences. Fairbnb.coop is designed to actively redress the problems with the current rental platforms, prioritising transparency, the distribution of benefits to communities, and democratic decision-making.

Sito Veracruz will inform us about the last updates of Fairbnb.coop and will introduce their crowdfunding campaign, which started in the end of April at Indiegogo.

English is spoken on this evening. Buy a ticket via the link above. Admission is € 5, including a drink.
