Why is this event so exciting?

A powerful movement is growing, and it is changing how and what we consume. This movement is wide and diverse, and it can often be referred to under the umbrella term of the sharing economy.

The sharing economy provides access to products, services and skills without relying on personal ownership. It is all about owning less and sharing more!
