The sharing economy: Contributions to food security in Australia

A unique example of the sharing economy ideal

Denise Gibran Nogueira’s thesis, The sharing economy: Contributions to food security in Australia explores the contributions of the sharing economy to food security in Australia by examining how the sharing economy promotes access to food to a population that is unable to acquire enough healthy quality food to meet their needs.

She writes: “the Open Food Network can be portrayed as a unique example of the sharing economy ideal type proposed by Acquier et al. (2017), which combines the three cores of the sharing economy (community-based economy, access economy, and platform economy) to promote change towards a more sustainable food system.”
