The Rise of Collaborative Consumption

There’s a movement growing. And it’s only just getting started.


The New School Tishman Environment and Design Center, Thursday, September 16.


Hear from…

Rachel Botsman, a leading expert on the power of collaboration and sharing to transform business and the way we live, and co-author with Roo Rogers of What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption will be a guest speaker at Parsons The New School of Design on Thursday, September 16.  


Rachel will share stories and research from all around the world, to explain how  from social lending (Zopa) to car sharing (Zipcar) and co-working (The Hub), from peer-to-peer rental (Zilok) to collaborative travel (AirBnB) and neighbourhood sharing schemes (NeighborGoods), millions of people from all around the world are already using Collaborative Consumption to reinvent  not just what we consume but how we consume.
