Collaborative consumption is reinvention of old market behaviors – renting, lending, swapping, bartering, gifting – through technology, taking place on a scale and in ways never possible before. Popular examples include bike sharing and Craigslist type sites.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Collaborative consumption unlocks hidden value in the assets and skills your organization has developed. It enables an organization to make revenue off a service or trade the right to use that service. It helps a new kind of value-based economy develop.
For New Orleans
New Orleans can benefit from collaborative consumption by reducing material consumption and finding value in community relationships.
