The Challenge

The future is shared

This much we know. Our future society will be sustainable and cities and communities are working hard to get there. But the future is something we have to co-create!

Embark on a journey to a circular and sharing Gothenburg! In Re-challenge 30 students have developed services for a city founded on a circular economy. The students have together construed a program based on a prior analysis, brainstorming of ideas and workable concepts.


The students developed eight concepts for a more sustainable Gothenburg focusing on increased social inclusion, behavioural changes and more efficient utilisation of resources.
