Gothenburg, like all cities, has its pros and cons. Despite problems with segregation and reliance on fossil fuels, Sweden's second city has a lot to offer in terms of collaboration and community, being voted the "world's most sociable city" earlier this year. The non-profit organization Kollaborativ Ekonomi Goteborg (Collaborative Economy Gothenburg) discusses the 12 ways Gothenburg is encouraging a collaborative community, improving its environmental footprint, teaching valuable life skills, and bringing people together.
