Shareable.net Map Jam and Share N Save demonstration – 3-5pm
Matt Scales, Zero Waste SA
The sharing economy is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed. So how do we find what’s going on out there?
Shareable.net are leading an international push to map sharing economy assets, through a global network of Map Jam events and our very own Zero Waste SA have recently launched a website called Share N Save that achieves similar things. Find out about both and make your contribution to the global database of sharing economy knowledge.
<<your passion here>> – sometime 1-7pm
Remember… this is a freespace festival! So that means…
- Activities are subject to change
- The online schedule has the latest
- If you want to see it happen – make it happen!
The New Economies program is possible because of the sponsorship of bankmecu – a customer-owned co-operative with a sustainable and responsible approach to banking. Their shareholders aren’t faceless investors, but the same people they’re serving. Like all co-operatives, they also have a commitment to advocate for and support the co-operatives movement. So good on them!
