We are in the era of the Sharing Economy. Over the past few years, companies like Airbnb, Carshare & EatWith, have begun to fundamentally change the way people eat, sleep and travel all over of the world.
Dubbed the most ‘socially conscious’ generation, most millennials believe in maximization of resources rather than owning them outright. New ideas about sharing have emerged to challenge the traditional discourse on resource allocation, ownership and accessibility.
This new landscape has huge implications for governments and businesses alike. For example, individuals and civil society groups can now collaborate to explore more efficient methods to allocate supply with demand, and will share information much faster than any traditional communication channel. In terms of business, many disruptors have changed the outlook of entire industries by creating innovative sharing solutions to challenge current business models.
We need to rethink the way we work, and create strategies in which they can collaboratively work for mutual benefit. The sharing economy is creating a wave of change that one must be prepared for, or be at risk of being swept up in its current.
