Gothenburg is a flourishing green city, with nearly 600,000 inhabitants, located on the west coast of Sweden. Gothenburg has a long tradition of a strong civil society and grass roots movement, which is also reflected when it comes to the development of the sharing economy in the city. Many of the sharing initiatives come from civil society organizations, but the local government has also taken an active role in both providing its own sharing services and to enable the growth of sharing initiatives from other actors. The cooperation with local sharing initiatives is constantly expanding, and with the use of a digital platform, the city has literally put the growing sharing economy on the map.
