Experience the global authority on the sharing economy, April Rinne (USA), as well as Director of Civic Partnerships at Airbnb, Stephanie Hodges (UK), and learn about new tendencies and potentials for the shared city.

The seminar will address the impact of the new wave of sharing on cities, e.g. on housing, tourism, infrastructure, congestion, environment, innovation, trust and coherence.

In addition to the international speakers, leading Danish experts will give examples and draw lines to the everyday life, businesses and other relevant situations in Denmark. What are the concrete benefits of the sharing economy - and for whom? And what are the negative aspects that we need to deal with? In general, what is the role of the government and local authorities, and how can private and public organisations benefit from collaborations?
