Sharing economy vs. Platform cooperativism
What drives the sharing economy and why do we participate? What actors are involved in its emergence and what kind of shape will it adopt? Be it Volvo, Husqvarna or Ikea, established corporations have increasingly showed interest in leveraging sharing economy principles – by means of sharing, swapping, bartering, collaborating, gifting, lending or accessing. Gianluca will talk about the various facets of this new field, including its manifestation across industries and the rich tapestry of platforms prevalent in Sweden.
The talk will be followed by a discussion that leads us to new forms of collaborations through platform cooperativism.
