Abstract

The sharing economy connects the human and material resources available to private individuals, companies and city organizational units in a coherent way. The aim of this article is to present a theoretical and practical approach to sharing economy in the context of using this approach to increasing the ecological security of cities.

In the article, the method of literature studies in the field of sharing economy and ecological security was used as the method of gathering knowledge, and the case study method was used to verify the theoretical assumptions of this concept on the example of specific projects implemented by Polish cities in this area. Taking into account the social perspective and the possibilities of using modern information technologies, thinking about the future of cities should be related to the creation of new community strategies, in which the sharing economy can be helpful. The sharing economy offers a number of solutions that are already visible in the development strategy of Polish cities, which contributes to the improvement of the quality of life of their residents in the field ecological security. Their selected examples are presented in this article.
