Title Making an upcycling station : makers’ culture, cross-sector collaborations and citizens’ participation for new services and practices within waste handling
Author Seravalli, Anna
Date 2016
English abstract
This guide summarizes some of the learnings emerged from the setting up of ReTuren the first Swedish upcycling station (återbrukstationen) in Malmö. The focus is on the role that makers’ activities, cross-sector collaboration and citizens’ participation can have in the setting up of an upcycling station and more in general in addressing sustainable city development out from a holistic perspective. Makers’ culture describes activities where non-professionals engage in repairing and making things by collaborating and sharing information and knowledge. This guide highlights how these activities might be used not only to inspire about waste reduction practices and behaviours, but also to foster new social connections, manage conflicts and intervene in the urban context out from an holistic sustainability perspective. Cross-sector collaborations are seen as a key approach in dealing with urban challenges, such as sustainability. Such collaborations allow to address challenges out from a holistic perspective, since they bring together different kinds of knowledge and experiences. In such a perspective, citizens’ contribution is also understood as playing an important role. This guide exemplifies how cross-sector collaborations and citizens’ participation might be at play in an upcycling station. What kind of opportunities but also challenges they entail.
