I'm involved with Sydney LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) a I'm a big fan of swapping, sharing and trading.
“What's mine is yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption” is one of the most ground-breaking business book of the recent times.
Similarly Rachel Botsman's speech The Case for Collaborative Consumption on TED.com had excellent reception.
Collaborative Consumption is defined by Wikipedia as an economic model based on sharing, swapping, bartering, trading or renting access to products as opposed to ownership.
This group is around the concept of Collaborative Consumption.
In our meetings, we’ll talk about
* sharing examples of how we're implementing this concept in our lives
* brainstorming on finding more ways to live in this manner which is more sustainable
* talk more in depth about the principles mentioned in the book
*explore ways of creating businesses around the concept (for the business minded folks)
If you are interested in Collaborative Consumption, then this group is for you.
