Sharing Cities Sweden will organize a launch event on 23 April 2018 as part of Sustainability Week at Lund University. The event will bring together the test-beds, national node and partners to present the early stages and ambitions for Sharing Cities Sweden.

Sharing Cities Sweden

Sharing Cities Sweden aims 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.

Sharing Cities Sweden will develop world-leading test-beds for the sharing economy in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Umeå. Through test-beds, sharing services and digital solutions will be developed. The opportunities and risks of the sharing economy will be tested and evaluated.

Sharing Cities Sweden will establish a national node to significantly improve national and international cooperation and promote an exchange of experience on sharing services. The test-beds will be supported by a national node for coordination, national learning and international exchange.

Viable Cities is a strategic innovation program for smart and sustainable cities in Sweden. Sharing Cities Sweden is a program of Viable Cities. Viable Cities brings together around 50 stakeholders in research, industry, government, local authorities and civil society. The vision for Viable Cities is that Sweden inspires and takes a leading role in energy and climate transitions through smart sustainable cites.
