A new neighbourhood in Malmö is emerging in Sege Park, an area with a rich history and exciting future. The existing parks and buildings provide the conditions for a good living environment. Sustainability, the sharing economy and urban agriculture are some key words for the building actors who are developing some 800 – 1,000 homes in Sege Park together with the municipality. The innovative aspect of the Malmö test-bed is the integration of principles for the sharing economy into the design of infrastructure and housing in Sege Park. The test-bed has come to be a setting where actors openly discuss and negotiate with each other about how to create a sustainable and sharing city district.
