During the last few decades of the 20th Century (and well into the 21st) we’ve indulged in a frenzy of hyper-consumerism, caught up in a cycle of buy, use (or not), and toss. We’re told it’s our civic duty to replace what we have with the “newer, trendier, better” to support the economy. But this unsustainable design principle -- “planned obsolescence” -- only results in a vast overflow of junk that ends up in landfills the world over. Hear from leading innovators and top designers in the avant-garde of a new design for collaborative consumption, which includes sharing services, space, tools, tech equipment, and so much more. And learn how Social Media is enhancing the movement towards living more sensible, responsible, and ultimately, more fulfilling lives.
