Aufbau und Etablierung einer Sharing Community an der Universität Basel

Project B1-20

With this project, the Students for Sustainability at Basel University (SDUBS) want to encourage people to deal with sustainability and a more sustainable lifestyle. Our aim is to minimize consumption of students and employees of Basel University in order to save resources. We want to achieve this with the creation and the establishment of a sharing community at our university. Nowadays everybody is talking about Share Economy. We want to see our university share as well. We want to combine the individual benefit that university members get when borrowing things, and therefore not having to buy them, with more attention towards sustainability. Via an online platform, it will be possible for students and employees to borrow and lend everyday items in a very easy way. Modern technology guarantees a positive sharing experience. Furthermore, a physical „locker room“ at the university ensure that the items can be exchanged easily.
