18. 06 Evening salon: Shared Housing
19:00 - 20:00

In young generation creating community patterns, establishing families later than their parents we see an emerging group of people sharing flats rather then buying or building new homes. Again, new products of short-term shared housing like AirBnB or couchsurfing have been appearing in Czech Republic. Others like co-housing or baugruppe however are more long-term and require active participation and financial investment from the residents. Is there a demand for co-housing in Czech Republic and Central Europe. While Germany and Austria has advanced this model of housing, it is completely unknown to post-communistic countries of Central Europe. With the first prototypes being built in Prague and Bratislava, they are seeking for the critical mass of clients. Again, both create new economic and social model of housing. Join our evening salon and investigate the viability and possibilities of shared housing in Central Europe. What are the financial, social benefits and legal constraints of such models?

Stefan Aue (Curator, Wohnungsfrage Project, Berlin)

18. 06 Evening salon: Shared Transport
19:00 - 20:00

Shared transport is a term for describing a demand-driven vehicle-sharing arrangement, in which travelers share a vehicle either simultaneously (e.g. ride-sharing) or over time (e.g. carsharing or bike sharing), and in the process share the cost of the journey, thereby creating a hybrid between private vehicle use and mass or public transport.
In past few years significant forms of shared transport have appeared in Central Europe. Bike sharing (Rekola, City bike sharing systems) or commercial, private products of car-sharing (Spolujizda or Uber) have been known also in the Czech Republic. As they slowly make their way to the market, their general pattern - and the difference is using the technology to get closer to their clients. Through smartphone application virtually every car can become a potential taxi (Uber) or bikes no longer stay at official bike-sharing stations, but are parked all around the city. The application allows you to find the nearest bike for easy ride. And while technology brings transport closer to citizens, we have witnessed few controversies related to personal data abuse. What are the pros-and-cons of using technology for shared transport? Can public transport as highly promoted form of traveling in modern cities compete with such products? How important shared transportation can become? And besides reducing traffic, what is their economic contribution to the city?
Join our evening salon about Shared transport in informal setting of Maharal Club. Along with our guests we will ask these, but not only these questions.

Participants:
Martin Kalab (Head of Advertising and Deputy Head of the Marketing Department at Wiener Linien Marketing, Vienna)
Rob Khazzam (International Launcher at Uber, Toronto)

19. 06 Evening Salon: Shared Culture
19:00 - 20:00

Imagine 5 prominent Central and Eastern European cultural managers, urbanists, activists nurturing culture and awareness about architecture and urban planning around one table. Shared culture will be debated from various aspects. How can we seek sustainability of top bottom, bottom up cultural projects in capitals and second cities? What are the constraints and on the contrary vital aspects of both models? How do different financial and management models as well as different target audiences influence shared culture - and on the contrary how does shared culture manifestating itself through recently popular creative hubs, co-working spaces influence economics, social climate and citizens in these cities?
