Description

Associate Professor Kes McCormick will analyse the development, progress and impact of Sharing Cities Sweden.

Sharing Cities Sweden is a national program with a budget of 12M Euro to put Sweden on the map as a country that actively and critically works with the sharing economy in cities. The objectives of the program are to develop world-leading test-beds for the sharing economy in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Umeå as well as develop a national node to significantly improve national and international cooperation and promote an exchange of experience on sharing cities. A key question that the seminar will address is how the sharing economy can contribute to the sustainable development goals?.
