The growing Collaborative Consumption movement is helping people cut costs, reduce their environmental impact, connect with their neighbors, and change their relationship with possessions. Hear how you can strengthen your neighborhood by joining the community of sharing, swapping, renting, bartering, trading and collaborating. Discover opportunities in your community for connecting, sharing, and collaborating and find new ways to cut back on your spending and reduce your environmental impact by utilizing shared resources.

  • An example for Collaborative Consumption is peer-to-peer carsharing like on http://www.rent-n-roll.de/ in Germany and http://www.drivemycarrentals.com.au/ in Australia. CC has got an interesting future!

  • Welcome!We’re going to try to 1. describe Collaborative Consumption and the Sharing Economy movements; 2. help you discover opportunities online and in your communities for connecting, sharing, and collaborating; 3. suggest ways to cut back on your spending and reduce your environmental impact by utilizing shared resources.My name is Caterina Rindi. I come from a teaching and non-profit background, which predisposes me to making do with less already. I have an expanded, international, and chosen family and have been rallying community for years, building Burning Man Camps and even a house with my friends. I came across CC last year, through Twitter and the local food movement. I found Shareable magazine and that’s when I fell down the online rabbit hole of the Sharing Economy. Relay Rides and NeighborGoods were picking up momentum, and I had started mo foods in the Spring, using resources that already exist and tapping local community. We collect surplus fruit and vegetables from local backyards and make value-added delicious products. Let me know if you have too many lemons in your backyard and I’ll come get them and trade you for some Spicy Pickled Oranges or Umeboshi. I also am in the research phase of starting a community kitchen space so if anyone is interested in talking more about that, catch me after the session.
