The Sharing Project is a new research initiative that aims to investigate cooperative models for economy by exploring potential for transitioning into a more collaborative, sharing-based economic system, i.e., a sharing economy. Based in Vancouver, BC, this research will explore,
- local attitudes (including reservations) toward engaging in a sharing economy,
- highlight the demands for the types of goods and services people would like to see including in a sharing system,
- and create recommendations to the City of Vancouver on how to expand the local sharing economy.
