SHARECITY 2016-2020

Sharecity logo

Led by Professor Anna Davies SHARECITY is funded by the European Research Council and uses innovative social science and collaborative research methods to explore the practices and sustainability potential of food sharing within cities. The project runs until 2020 and involves a team of international researchers and a high-level advisory panel of global experts committed to exploring novel pathways for more sustainable futures.

SHARECITY will establish the significance and potential of food sharing economies to transform cities onto more sustainable pathways by developing deeper theoretical understanding of contemporary food sharing, generating comparative international empirical data about food sharing activities within cities, assessing the impact of food sharing activities, and exploring how food sharing in cities might evolve in the future. Conducting such frontier science SHARECITY will open new research horizons to substantively improve understanding of how, why and to what end people share food within cities in the 21st Century.
