Authors: Märta Lagergren and Sandra Olsson.

Supervisor: Matts Kärreman.

Key Words: Sustainability, Sustainable City Development, Citizen Integration, Value Configuration, Malmö, Curitiba.

Purpose: Understand what role the interaction between citizens and institutions in sustainable cities plays and how value is created in sustainable city development.

Methodology: We have used a qualitative approach. We have conducted a multiple case study with semi-structured in-depth interviews and semi-structured focus group interviews.

Theory: The theory addresses the perspective of citizens and institutions in sustainable city development. Also, we add theory to address value creation in sustainable development.

Empirical foundation: The focus group interviews and in-depth interviews were conducted on institutions and citizens in the sustainable cities Curitiba in Brazil and Malmö in Sweden.

Conclusion: Findings indicate a need of change in the value configuration of sustainable city development, indicating a potential paradigm shift. We have developed a model, as a means to present a new process for value creation within sustainable cities to facilitate for institutions and citizens. (Less)

Syfte: Utforska vilken roll interaktionen mellan institutioner och medborgare spelar, och var värde skapas i hållbar stadsutveckling.

Metod: Uppsatsen utgår från en kvalitativ forskningsansats med induktiv teori. Vi har utfört en fallstudie med fokusgrupper och semistrukturerade intervjuer.

Teori : Teorin beskriver hållbar stadsutveckling från både ett institutionellt- och medborgarperspektiv. Vår teori beskriver även värdeskapandet i hållbar utveckling.

Empiri: Fokusgruppsintervjuer och djupintervjuer har genomförts på institutioner och medborgare i de två hållbara städerna Curitiba i Brasilien och Malmö i Sverige.

Slutsats: Vi har identifierat ett behov av en förändring i värdekonfigureringen i hållbar stadsutveckling, vilket indikerar ett potentiellt paradigmskifte. Med hjälp av vår utvecklade modell vill vi underlätta för institutioner och medborgare i hållbara städer att på ett nytt sätt skapa värde. (Less)
