Sito Veracruz

I am an urban innovation consultant specialized in the creation of interactive city tools and in the integration of technology in urban policies.

My academic background is a Degree in Law and a Master in Urban and Regional planning, both in Madrid, where I lived from 2003 until 2012.

I am established in Amsterdam since 2012, where I experienced the rise and effects of vacation rental platform. Within the platform Fair City Amsterdam I was one of the initial inspirers of Fairbnb.

In order to approach the collaborative economy from an urban commons perspective, I advocate for the need of combining strong regulations with participatory bottom-up projects able to keep this economy as a real non-extractive alternative, positive both for cities and citizens.
