Urban Sharing: Sustainability and Institutionalisation Pathways

Project: ResearchInterdisciplinary research


Urban sharing of assets has emerged as a prospective solution to sustainability challenges faced by cities. But, its sustainability potential and institutionalisation pathways have not been systematically examined. Urban Sharing aims to examine, test and advance knowledge about urban sharing organisations (USOs) across 5 cities from 5 continents: Amsterdam, Toronto, Shanghai, Seoul and Melbourne by undertaking a novel inter- and trans-disciplinary study with three objectives:

1. DESIGN: To examine how USOs are designed and operate and how they vary in different city contexts
2. PRACTICES: To study the sustainability impacts of USOs and how they vary across cities
3. PATHWAYS: To advance theoretical understanding of institutionalisation pathways of USOs across cities.
