A smart map leads to smart sharing
The smart map – or Smarta Kartan – aims to make it easier for the people of Gothenburg and visitors of the city to live and experience more sustainably by encouraging a sense of community, facilitating new ways of meeting and promoting access rather than ownership of things.
Smarta Kartan maps current and upcoming activities and networks, as well as exchanges, give-aways, maker- and hackerspaces, access to bike, boat and car sharing, access to secure and free phone charging or renting of outdoor equipment – all within the categories of Things, Spaces, Mobility, Food, Knowledge and Meetings.
Anyone can submit a proposal for something to be shown on the map, which is then evaluated in joint consultation between the association Collaborative Economy Gothenburg, the City of Gothenburg and Citizen Services Administration.
