Reaching out in Barcelona

Airbnb and the sharing economy are already changing lives and having a positive impact in cities around the world. Every day, we hear stories from people who use Airbnb to pay their bills, stay in their homes and connect with people from around the world.

But we’ve just scratched the surface. We know the sharing economy has the potential to do even more good in communities. That’s why we’re working so hard to educate policymakers about who we are, what we stand for and how we can make communities better places to live and visit.

Yesterday, as part of that effort, a coalition of sharing economy companies sent a letter to leaders in Barcelona and Catalonia regarding this new economic model. You can read the letter here. We look forward to working with leaders in Spain and around the world to ensure the sharing economy reaches its full potential.
