Episode Title: Scooters, Sharing & Sustainability
Episode Description: Given the global sustainability challenges that we face, we need new forms of production and consumption. However, will the sharing economy be a part of the solution? Or, part of the problem? In this month's episode, Sofie and Steven discuss the sharing economy broadly before elaborating on business models in the sharing economy. Speaking critically, they elaborate on aspects of the sharing economy that are more likely to lead to more sustainable consumption. They also interview Nancy Bocken - professor at the IIIEE in sustainable business management - as well as Ida Björling, Oskar Henriksson, Tove Lund, and Petter Olsson - who attended the event 'Sharing Cities' hosted by IIIEE during Lund University Sustainability Week.
