The preparations for the 10th Sefa Conference are already in full swing. The Conference Committee proudly announces the theme of the next conference: Sharing Economy.

The Sharing Economy is a rapidly evolving new economic development. With its global and local implications it is changing markets, cities, and lives. Students, part of generation Y, are at the heart of the sharing economy. Therefore, we want to connect you to interesting speakers related to this new economic way of thinking. Together we will explore new opportunities and formulate challenges that will arise in the future.

Because we are all students at the University of Amsterdam, we will also focus on “our city” Amsterdamas a Sharing City. What are the opportunities of sharing for Amsterdam and how will our city develop in the future?

The conference will shape conversations and questions about the changing landscape of our (sharing) economy. We would like to share different perspectives and innovative ideas with you, to inspire and prepare to participate in the sharing economy.


This will be the start of the new academic year hosted on the 20th of September. Get inspired by Dutch specialist, leading pioneers, and entrepreneurs who are convinced that sharing is our future or rather have a critical view.
