Sharing Communities

Reference number 2018-04648
Coordinator IVL SVENSKA MILJÖINSTITUTET AB - IVL Svenska MIijöinstitutet Stockholm
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 000 000
Project duration January 2019 - December 2020
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

This project aims to investigate the social drivers in a neighborhood and see both how the potential for sharing in existing communities could be utilized on a higher scale and how an increased sense of group affiliation on the topic of sharing could strengthen the institutionalization of sharing among tenants. The project will focus on how housing companies can facilitate the sharing among tenants and offer space for sharing.There is furthermore a chance to include the sharing of transport.

Expected results and effects

The result will be useful for housing companies for existing areas as well as new construction. Furthermore, the results of the project will complement, consolidate or contrast the insights that emerge in Sharing Cities Sweden, more specifically in the test beds where new construction is carried out or planned with the intention of promoting increased sharing (Gothenburg and Malmö). Sharing has the potential to facilitate new and old areas to grow together, and for different community groups to meet, and sharing can be a way to strengthen a district.

Planned approach and implementation

This project will be carried out by IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet in cooperation with Stockholmshem, IIIEE at Lunds University and ÅWL Arkitekter as part of an already running pilot project in Solberga within the project "Grön bostad".
