Platform Cooperativism Resource Library


Damiano Avellino (Fairbnb) at Who Owns the World Conference, convened by the Platform Cooperativism Consortium at The New School in November 2019. Damiano is a speaker for the Owning Our Power: Young Lions of the Co-op Movement event.

About the event: We are proud to showcase a combination of some of the most inspiring projects that have recently launched, and others that have distinctly proven themselves over the past few years. We will hear about strategies for capitalization, franchisement of the co-op model, the encouragement and facilitation of democratic governance among distributed producers, collaboration with unions, technological innovations relying on blockchain, and revenue sharing in the community. In quick succession, presenters will offer you an overview of how they are collectively making cooperative interventions across a range of sectors. Learn from these pioneers.

Damiano Avellino is the co-founder of, a platform co–operative that allows people to travel in a sustainable way while giving back to the communities in the destinations they travel to. Damiano advocates new alternatives to the current extractive digital economy, promoting platform cooperativism as a fair alternative to creating platforms based on solidarity and inclusion.
